Partly cloudy but at times Sun tried to Shine in p.m. but North wind moved snow a lot and got to below this night, so I kept Front room heater going all night and wasn’t none too warm, this means Thursday last Part an dFriday after midnight. Men gave cattle alfalfa Stack and wasn’t none too nice but Dan book Cat and Dozer and made a road over hill South of Dan’s by going South after he pushed snow South of Barn on Hill and was it deep, but only hay to get out in a hurry as Cattle need feed.
