Man oh man, did we ever get the wind yesterday. It did rain a lot most of the day, but I don't think it was as intense here as predicted. After trips to the barn, my bibbies were wet to the knee and my heavy canvas barn coat is still damp. The local FB community is full of notifications about power outages in the area, but thankfully we dodged that bullet. The wind was the big deal here, nearly ripping a stocking cap off my head and taking my feet out from under. Three of my Kids have long commutes to and from work and I needed to touch base with them last night, just a few words to know they'd gotten home safe. (Yes, I'm one of those mothers.) Stove did his best, but it was as if the wind was sucking the heat up the chimney. It put a pretty good dent in the wood rack supply, trying to keep Stove happy. After being awakened at 3 a.m., it was a good day to pile on the cats and dog and watch marathon Blue Bloods reruns and nap. Soggy goats and sodden chickens were happy to go to bed early. It was, as Pooh and Piglet would say, a blustery day, but we all made it through, and it seems calm this morning.
So far, so good.
