How #Harvest17 Is Like A Dickens Novel

October 24, 2017 11:52 AM

#Harvest17 is put on hold in some places in the Midwest after rainfall knocked some farmers out of the fields for a few days. In other places, harvest is going strong. Some farmers are wrapping up, some are just getting started.

The opening line of Charles Dickens’ 1859 novel A Tale of Two Cities could be used to describe #Harvest17 so far this year, as shown on Twitter.

It was the best of times.

It was the worst of times.

It was the age of wisdom.

It was the age of foolishness.

It was the season of light.

It was the season of darkness.

It was a time for love.

It was a time for friends.

It was a time for family.

It was a time for beginnings.

It was a time for endings.

It was a time for rain.

It was a time for sun.

It was a time for scenic shots.

And it was a time to be thankful.
