A Rude Awakening!
Yesterday was flooding... Last night was awakening at about 2am to the sound of a tree cracking and coming to the ground with a THUD outside the bedroom window. Well it wasn't quite outside the window (about 100 feet away) but I knew it was close . Didn't sleep well after that and then power disappeared at 230 am for about 6 hrs. Good thing out of it all was 4 good cedar saw-logs. Should make some nice siding for the on-going work on the barn siding. Our neighbors weren't so lucky though. A tree fell into their trailer they are living in. Good thing no one was hurt. On goes the fall. Hopefully that's it for disasters this year.
OK, We Have Had Enough
For the first time in 9 years, the pond has over-flowed its banks onto the road. Not much, but enough to cause concern if the rain was to continue! Cooper was a SUPER brat.. had to paddle and try to excavate the corner of the pasture which was under 6 inches of water. Lucky for us he had lots of ground above the water. Our own mini-Niagra Falls in back of the barn. Thank heavens today is over and the water has receded with only minor damage. Tomorrow is another day...
