Yard Lights

 by Ron Page
When the glacier retreated from northern Illinois, it left in our county a lake roughly 15 miles in diameter. Over the centuries, it receded to “swamp” status, and, around 1910, it was drained, leaving a flat-as-a- pool-table layer of thick, black, fertile soil.

Our house and outbuildings sat on a little glacial hump on the edge of “the swamp”, a hump sitting about 30 feet above the surrounding flat terrain. From our vantage point, we could see our flat 320 acres, as well as distant water towers in towns we never visited. At night, stars were brilliant and the Milky Way, which a college friend from Chicago believed was fictitious, was clearly visible. We could see the lights from a highway intersection a few miles to the southeast. To the north, we could sometimes see the “Northern Lights”, which could be a bit unsettling when returning home alone late at night.

It was very dark when my dad arose at 4:00 a.m. to begin the chores that were part of raising cattle, hogs, and chickens. But as did all farmers, we had a big yard light mounted near the top of the machine shed that was essential for the two or three hours before sun-up. From our view atop the little glacial drumlin, Dad could easily count the yard lights of the neighbors scattered over the flat swamp.
