YAY! We got that good rain on the North end of the ranch a few weeks ago, but not a drop on our south end. Well all of this fell on the south side!
It'll be a few days before those roads set up enough that we can get out and check how much rain we had, but I can tell you that we are whooping it up around here!
It started to rain just after dinner.
Perfect timing to curl up with a new magazine that came in the mail:
My latest finish:
and take a nap to the sound of this:
An hour later we had this:
There was not a drop in this tank before this and this is at least 3' deep.
This poor little fella wasn't quite sure what had just happened:
My poor chickens really got hammered. The door to their coop faces south and it is always open during the day and the rain hit from the south.
They were a little bedraggled.
There was a whole lots of feather shakin' going on:.
As well as a hen conference that, I assume, discussed what had just taken place:
I had wandered out in my daily footwear which is a pair of hiking boots. I hadn't intended to end up submerged, but I felt badly for the chickens when I saw the state of their coop and didn't bother going back for my irrigation boots:
I had a mess to clean up. This is an icky picture, but just thought you might want to know that it's not all fun and games out here:
And we lost a ton of huge tree limbs. This is just a small portion :
The wind was nuts and there had to be some sort of rotation in it because these trailers were parked parallel to each other:
From this angle, you can see a bit of the drag marks from the cage top trailer:
Sorry about hounding y'all with another detailed weather report, but this is a pretty big deal in these parts. Between the surprise visit from our boy that the kids pulled off, this amazing rain, and a couple of other things...well I would have to say that the Good Lord has been mighty generous with those blessings, and you can bet that we are mighty thankful!
