My farmer's preparation was good. We only lost one chick, who'd gotten away from their house and was found by a predator. The three draft horse and the little guys chose to stay out in the rain. All four of them look like the went through a car wash. The two riding horses stayed inside until the storm moved on. I think Wendell must have spent the night in the pasture instead of going for shelter in the bank barn. I fully expected to find his mane blowing the direction that the wind had blown all night!
My thoughts and prayer to those of you who are getting the storm now.
Thanks for the mud, Irene.
The pigs loved- no, LOVED the water that soaked their pen and made MUD.
Thanks to all of you who left caring comments while we waited for Irene!
