Snow Storm in South Dakota

This morning I read an article about the recent snow storm in South Dakota.  This storm has been devastating for the ranchers in that area.  Authorities are estimating that there has been a 5% loss of cattle in the State.  Looking at this event from the eyes of a small rancher, we would be out of business with a 5% loss of our stock.  Some of these folks will lose everything they own and will have to liquidate family lands and homes to recoup what they owe their creditors.

As for me and my house, we will send up prayers for these people and for the cattle they try to care for.
