double Kigo, snow and spring rain

by Issa,
1823, Age 61
His fundamental of living was on a rice farmer as a land owner.
I think that his three times marriages have been possible for his property,
based on rice field.
The snow was poem for Poet Issa, but it was hazards for farmer Issa.
This ku has double Kigo, snow and spring rain, in which I found his contradiction that he was a poet as well as a farmer.
