Mother Nature has reall been Pissed Off
For the past week there has been storm after storm pounding the farm. Colorado has experienced 16 Tornadoes so far. I have received hail each day for the past eight and forget about me having any tomoates - even with them covered the hail broke thru my apple baskets that where trying their best to protect my little deck garden but Mother Nature has just been on a bender. Last night we had another round - hail came so fast, so hard that I went to the basement again. I have been doing a lot of that lately. So I have put some needlwork projects down there with my head lamp so at least I can keep busy. I know NUTS but heck if I am going out I am going out doing something with my hands.
After I came up from the basement the rain was still coming down in buckets. My pond that was dry is filling up to it's edges. When I peaked out the window I saw a DOUBLE RAINBOW - I guess it is Mother Natures way of saying "SORRY"
After the storm had passed I checked the animals All where O.K. but scared. Imagine sitting in a huge metal barn with a hail storm. I have done it many times and it is deafening. After giving rounds of hugs, kisses and words of understanding I went around to see my truck - Perfectly O.K. even after beening hit day after day with hail.
Now the frogs are singing, birds singing, hens a laying and standing water everywhere. My decks have no more paint, the paint on the house eves and little bit of flat wood (I do have a log home) are almost all gone. The hen house, tool shed and small wood barn all look like you sand blasted them. I painted last year and I guess I will be doing it again this year but I think I am going to wait a while - YES, the weather guesser is saying we have two more days and then we crank up the heat to almost the 90's..... Yuck HEAT. See I always have weather to complain about!
