I thank everyone for prayers and good wishes. We still have a bit of rain, but it is very light. We got about six inches, so I will be renting out canoes in my basement as a side enterprise. :) All of the people and animals here are alright.
Most of our damage was from wind. We had a chicken house picked up and moved about a foot. This is a structure that my husband can only move with the tractor. Fortunately, it was only put back down on a feed trough, not a critter. We have metal roofing flapping on a few buildings and a leaky hole in one of our barns. Our new hoop greenhouse lost its cover, but it doesn't seem to be torn. With the absence of the cover, the crops in it were beaten. Our fall Brassica crops are on their sides, moaning. We hope that some of the plants will spring back up. We hope that we can still have a harvest from many of them. We'll see.
I worried too much about the pet rabbits, so to shut me up, D2 went outside and loaded them in small pet carriers to wait out the storm. I enjoyed having them inside, but we didn't want them to get too warm, so they stayed on a cool, enclosed porch.
My heart goes out to all who have been hit with the eye of this storm. To all who still have power, and are able to read this, I wish you safety.
p.s.- Wendell wanted me to tell you that he is pruny (you know how you get when you're in a tub too long). He's requesting a blow dryer! :)
