Let it snow - part 2

With temperatures in the mid-40s the snow is sinking quickly

Lots of photos in today's story -
Today temperatures reached the mid-40s and the past snowfall is a melting minor glacier.

Despite that here are more snowfall memories from Ada Icon viewers. You'd find animals, snow plows, rural scenes, at least one dog attempting to navigate the snow plus a polar bear. Ada can't have snow without polar bears.

In addition, Jenn Hiester provides four scenes as today's featured photos. Thank you to all the viewers who participated in this photo project.

Let it snow

Here's how Ada Icon viewers will remember February's 9.5 inches of snow

More photos tomorrow -
The past few weeks haven’t been much fun as temperatures stayed below freezing for two weeks in tandem with the  heavy snowfall.

Despite that, Icon viewers answered the call for snow photos last week. We received nearly 20 photos and every one of them has a story to tell.

When 9.5 inches of snow covers the ground what else is there to do expect go outside and play – if you are a dog.

Or, you can take photos of the snow from inside your house or outside, especially after you’ve successfully cleared your drive way.

Conservation and Tillage conference virtual this spring

This conference is traditionally held at Ohio Northern University

This spring's Conservation Tillage and Technology Conference traditionally held on the Ohio Northern University campus is virtual this year. 

Four days of topic related programming will be provided March 9-12, (Tuesday-Friday). There is still time to register. Each day will start at 8 a.m. and will have five hours of programming, ending about 2 p.m.

That adds up to 20 hours of presentations on current topics important for farmers, crop consultants and educators.

Because the program is virtual and therefore travel is not an issue, the planning committee has put together a list of national experts from universities, agencies, industry professionals and others.
