It was a disastrous year for the farmers. The snow fell and fell until the government relief agency had to step in and lend a hand.
"It must have been terrible," said the government man to a farmer. "All that snow."
"Could have been worse," calmly answered the farmer. "My neighbor had a lot more snow than we did."
"How can that be?" asked the government man.
"His farm is twice the size of this one," replied the farmer.
