Just a note to let the readers of this blog know that I have not abandoned it, but there has been some technical difficulties recently that have limited my ability to be online and post to this blog. A few days ago we had a severe thunderstorm with some very strong winds. Some different towns in the general area reported 80mph winds. I don't think it got nearly that bad at our farm but it was bad enough to break out our bedroom window and so some light damage to a few sheds.
It was very early in the morning and I was kind of in that half awake half asleep mode during the first part of the storm. That is until our bedroom window exploded. That will wake a person up right quick. Hello! I am awake now!Nothing hit it, but one window had blow in unbroken, possibly causing the other window to break. All I know is the glass all flew outward and outside. During this storm our Internet tower was damaged. There is a possibility it might be fixed Wednesday, but only if the pasture is dry enough to get a truck up the hill. I hate to be pessimistic but I don't see that happening. The pasture is so saturated from all the rain right now the water just seeps up out of the ground in soft places where you step. I have only very limited access to a temporary dial-up account right now, but I promise when our regular Internet access is back online, I will be too! Thank you for your patience!
The picture is of a flooded field a few miles from our house. On a positive note, the grass sure is growing from all the rain, everything is nice and green here on the farm.
