Something About Warren Windrow

Windrow
Hare be rows.

As you’re out driving around this autumn, looking for colorful leaves or roadside apple cider, be on the lookout for warrens and windrows.

Warren is the official name for the network of wild rabbit burrows, originating from a medieval Anglo-Norman concept similar to a hunting license for a given area.

Windrows are rows of cut hay or other small grain crops. By analogy, the term is also be applied to a row of any other material such as snow, earth or materials for collection.

It’s always fun to find these facts staring at you in the face and thinking you’re finally catching on to a joke John wrote 35-plus years ago.
