What the Hail?
It has been a stormy evening here in Kansas, with thunder, heavy rain and a short but pretty impressive hail storm. I heard it hitting the roof first, then the hail started hitting the windows and as the storm went on I was sure they would break, but they did not. I was less concerned about the windows than I was about the goats. They have not one shed but 3 sheds and the horse trailer to choose from. Still, I couldn't help but worry about the kids. Did they know enough to go in them during a storm? As soon as it was reasonably safe, I did check them and they were all OK, in the sheds with their mothers. Here are some pictures taken after the hail storm.

Standing water beside the porch with the ice pellets floating on the water. Why does this picture make me want a cup of hot chocolate with mini-marshmallows?
Don't worry, that wasn't good hay that got rained on, just some old hay set aside for the garden.
Look how much water and hail piled up on this tarp!
