It was a perfectly gorgeous morning, shining sun and blue skies. Milking went well and I got the stalls cleaned in no time. Bess really likes our daily routine of going out to sit on the deck when I get back to the house, even if she went to sit and watch while I'm in the barn. It's "our" thing to do. She's big on togetherness. I had some business to attend to and phone calls to make. Purse in hand, I was finally ready to go to the feed store. In fact, Cam had called and I'd asked her if she needed anything because I was going to leave. And then. In a matter of seconds the sky went dark, there was thunder and lightning and hail, followed by a downpour. I was this close, but obviously the trip for feed was cancelled. Ratchafratch.
It will take another couple of days for the yards to dry so mowing has been put off again. I almost got started yesterday. I was this close.
