I remember in Dec. of 57 I was at my grandfather's farm in Vermont where it was (then) regularly 20-30 below zero, yet the barn was really comfortable. We would milk, then I would take the H and spreader out. One cold day the chain broke and I and my grandfather had to shovel the whole load off in the bonechilling cold. I'll never forget that even tho' I'm now 70, but don't ask me what I did yesterday.

I remember it was warm in the barn with all the cows no matter how cold it got outside. West barn door was insulated, but I remember the frost building up on the inside. I was sure glad when Dad quit milking in the winter of '55/56 and didn't have to haul manure any more, or climb up the silo to throw down insilage. One bad thing was we kept my 4-H cow for house milk and one cow didn't warm the barn and I had to milk her by hand. Hated coming home from basketball practice and still had to milk the cow... game days were better, Dad milked her.
