    :yuckyuck:lol: My aunt suggested that it was starting to get dark which meant they couldn't see us laying in the ditch and buckshot to their tires! I would have loved to and if ever there is a next time, I will be video taping it and calling it in. They tore up the neighbors hay field and when he asked them to stop and left, they went right back to it. :rant Had I known that... maybe I would have.

    As for the goats... YUP! It is about darn time they start :gig IMG_20160719_051611.jpg
    I think this one thinks she is a dog.... :hide


    They are just confused individuals who most all came from either very small herds (2 goats for scarlet's, 2 does and 4 kids for tilda, bottle baby for olive, 2 does and 5 kids for rebel and then about 40+ for May) All they know is this "normal" :lol: I use that word very lightly! :gig

    Yet another SEVERE storm. Each one seems to get worse than the last. This is 5 severe storms in 4 weeks for us. upwards of 60,000 people are without power. Lots of damage. Lots of problems. We were very fortunate that only a mild sized branch hit the fence and did very little damage. Part of the roof blew off the hay manger/rabbit shelter but the rabbits had been moved to another pen so no biggie. But many trees down all over and we may not have power for a good long while...

    Sorry to hear it Sam. May be time to get a generator backup system? At least to power like refers and freezers and such. Don't know if you have gas or electric for cooking, but up north where you are, you probably have a wood stove that you could cook on in a pinch, or in summer, grill out. Biggest thing is keeping the food safe.

    We are picking up a generator today I believe. THis weather is not normal for us in any way.

    People in the city are looking at possibly up to 4 days until power is restored there was so much damage and so many people out of power. We are getting ready for the long haul.

    Well thankfully power is back on! We called right away because we woke up as soon as it hit so :bow to the line men who started working on just our issue at 4 am and didn't finish until close to 12 hours later. It was an absolute mess. Still is. Still many folks without power for potentially upwards of three more days. Others have tons of house damage and vehicle damage as well. Praying for those who suffered such severe damage and thankful all were not harmed.
