It has been a hell of a week!
Sunday we had a wicked storm pass through.
Serious wind and rain.
I did get pictures of the pigs' yard under water,
but the camera won't give them to the computer.
The wind snapped this tree, and the top
landed on the top two wires. The only
thing that kept it from taking out all of
the wires was the branch. The power
blinked out at 10 pm Sunday night, but
it came back. It went out for good
Monday morning at 5:30 am.
As I type this by generator power, it is 2 pm Friday
and we still do NOT have power. Ever Source called
this morning and said that someone would be out.
I've yet to see, or hear, anyone checking it out.
It is getting quite expensive to run the generator.
But, at least I am not trying to fill buckets of
water from the brook out behind the barn.
We've done that in the past, when we were younger.
But, the animals don't know any different.
Stormy and his visiting girlfriend are using the
temporary shelter. Fortunately they are both
trained to the electronet, so it does not have to be on.
The water has receded in the pigs' yard.
Their acre was 3/4's under water.
They had plenty of dry places to sleep though.
The chickens kiddie pool was empty S.
They still had a dry place to hang out outside
under the broken EZ-up
No. They are not spoiled.
Hiding in plain sight in the garden is Callie Calico.
She is an orange, white and gray tabby calico.
She has found the young catnip and is getting 'stoned'.
You can see her better here in the lower right corner.
Below, Jack Black is coming to see what she has.
And, the chickens are working on cleaning out the garden.
Have a good weekend all.
If you are out and about Saturday
from 9-1 come check us out
at the Danbury Winter Farmer's Market.
