This wasn’t the post I intended to write today. These weren’t the pictures I hoped to share. But Mother Nature has a funny way of deciding what does and does not happen.
Last night, shortly before I was planning to go to bed, the TV warned of a storm that was heading towards our area. They stated that it had heavy rain, some hail and strong winds. I joked on Facebook that it better go around, because I wasn’t in the mood to deal with a storm.
She showed me.
The first storm hit about 10 p.m., and although at first seemed to not be that bad, it quickly changed its tune. We had a lot of hail, wind took down sections of fence and spun our calf shelter, killing one calf and injuring another.
I thought that was it, and went to bed, knowing there wasn’t anything we could do during the night.
And then at 4 this morning, another storm came through…bringing more hail, more wind, but thankfully, no more destruction.
In total, we received 1.15″ of rain, and a solid coating of hail. The pictures speak more than I can:
