(With apologies to Garth Brooks.) Nothing much of note happened yesterday except the electrical storm that blew through in the afternoon and, for a brief time, it was a doozy. I had received a phone call when the sky darkened, the wind picked up force, and the the lightning struck, followed by rolling thunder. When the phone crackled in my ear as lightning lit the sky nearby, it was time to hang up and go unplug the computer and other vulnerable appliances. Running through the rain, I hurried to close the hen house door. The silly chickens had been in the coop, but came outside to see what I was doing and got soaked. The day started out cold and got colder. The darned wood stove is still being balky, belching smoke periodically and slow to catch fire. It finally cooperated and Bess and the cats decided it would be better to stay curled up and warm instead of accompanying me to put the goats to bed. The rain hadn't lasted long, but I can't say I blamed them.
There isn't a cloud in the sky this morning...we'll see.
