March 22, 1924: Tried to Scrape Skin from Hide Until I Broke Fingernail

March 22, 1924, Saturday: Snowed some during night and looked stormy all a.m. and p.m., snowed quite hard. Jake came and he and Will butchered a hog for each of us and had to skin as water too cold to scald, and I tried to scrape skin from hide until I broke fingernail. Mr. John Carr came to see Jake. Will has a cold and I am lazy.
