Springtime in Amherst
Apr. 20th, 2004 @ 09:42 am
You can tell it is spring in Amherst because the wind carries the smell of manure from the cow farms in Hadley.
And I have a nice spring-y image.
Normally, "cow farms" are called "ranches" or "dairy farms" depending upon the ultimate raison d'être
of the animals. How vividly I remember manuring season in Iowa (choke, gasp, wheeze). I imagine Cook College at Rutgers smells much the same way, especially since it was 90 or so yesterday.
Also, why does the scent of cow manure make you have a mood of "happy"?
he's loony Jamie?
or other things make him happy?
or *spring* makes him happy
or he's loony
He's completely off his nut, but that doesn't really have any relevance here, does it?
yes it does
that's why cow manure makes him happy...
it's a sorta nutty reason
Considering the amount of cows in Iowa versus the amount of cows in Hadley, MA, I can only imagine what manuring season in Iowa must have been like.
The reason I am in a happy mood is because it is supposed to be in the 70s today.
Moo, I say. MOO! MOO!
It is supposed to be in the 20s today... Celsius, that is.

is it really manure?
Hey Jamie :)
I've heard stories that the smell is actually not manure, but that of bacteria-infested rotting vegetables...maybe for the farm animals to eat come springtime? Yech! I really don't know. I could be wrong!
