oh dear lord

Watch out what you wish for, eh?

My last post wished for rain-
and oh boy did we ever get hammered last night :-o

Got a minute of it on camera,
it lasted a good four hours in total.
You can see the force of the lightening in the middle
of the video and towards the end - yikes!

I'd never seen such a fierce tropical storm in my life -
something's terribly wrong with our weather patterns lately...


One of our evergreens lost a limb
and smashed part of a chicken coop run,
so we had to fix that this morning.

The barn flooded and is a swamp this morning.

Our house flooded a few times last night too,
since the storm hit so hard and so fast
we didn't have time to close all the windows in time.

We played this game for 4 hours...
Open windows to try and cool the super-hot house down,
then rains would come smashing down
and we'd run around closing windows again
and suffocating.

What a summer!

Ah ha! I'm in. I have been trying, since yesterday, to post a comment. Me thinketh your blog doth not liketh me. Comment denied.

Pooy. I've got lots to say.

Crap weather, woman! What is going on over there?

Hope the girls (as in chickens) are okay.

OMG that was some storm! So sorry about the troubles you had. I agree, I think the weather patterns this year are very strange.
