The Big Storm…

Last night the heat finally got out of hand and caused a really bad storm. We had poring rain, hail, lightning, thunder, and the wind was so fast and hard. The storm lasted for a few hours and cause a lot of damage. It reminded me of when I was a child and sat though bad hurricanes. I found one article about it http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/48024138/ns/weather/. Luckey (well thanks to God as we were praying hard) we only lost power for 18 hours and then they fixed the main line up the road so we got the  power back earlier then expected. All we could hear on the radio was it could be 2 to 10 days before we would get it back so we consider ourselves blessed. Poor little Chase was so scared when I had to run out into the storm last night to grab the grill cover and lay down the patio furniture. This storm came out of no where or I would have put them away earlier.

We lost the chicken run, but the house inside the coop held well and the girls were safe. We tried to fix it today, but only got it covered up until we can get the material we need, as we had downed power lines so we couldn’t get out all day. It’s not secure from animals, but their house still is. We also lost a couple of sides/big limbs to a couple of different trees. Our neighbor lost a lot of trees so we were out helping him chop and pile them up once we were done in our yard. We still have our trees to deal with, but hubby is still sick so the tree branches in our yard can wait till tomorrow or Monday. Anyways, if you got some of this storm I hope you are well. I am off to do some chores I couldn’t get done earlier without power.
