What Blew In
With storm warnings on the news, I did a lot of prepping throughout the day, including bringing more wood to the porch. Turned out to be a good thing. This morning it went from overcast and dead calm to gale-force winds in seconds. It sounded like a freight train when it hit and the trees are dancing and bending like...well, like nothing I like to see. No rain as yet. Oops, spoke too soon. Even tiny drops are hitting the window like hail. Crum. Not looking forward to barn chores today.
In an attempt to use up some of the Easter leftovers, last night I put the potatoes, peas and ham into a scallop casserole. Gosh, it was good. The problem being that now I have leftover scalloped potatoes. Hmmm.
No dawdling today. I need to get the girls milked and get back to the house. Losing power is a distinct possibility with winds like this and I need to be prepared.
