We went on a "routine" tornado watch Friday until 0200. At 0210, we both woke up to the most terrifying noises imaginable, the worst storm in our lives....I grabbed both chihauhau's and headed for the hallway and told the spousal unit I was waiting out the tornado with my babies. We didn't really think one hit our area but the wind was unreal, trees broken all over the place and our power went down until this morning at 0805. My poor chickens actually did very well until tonight. Something got into their trailer house and 2 of them are not there. What the heck? No feathers anywhere, just 2 lovely chooks missing! See the water dispenser on the right....I had filled it @1 hour prior to checking on them again and it was empty...hmm.
Oh..our computer fried too. You gotta love the storms. Our power company is a co-op, and they try really hard to keep things working for us. I don't know if the co-ops are a stateside thing or not.
The coyotes are howling now...hmm, wonder if they like chicken? Little brats.
Oh, the half a beef in the freezer...among other things...I told the spousal unit to LEAVE THE DOOR SHUT AND HIT THE RESET BUTTON. He actually took some steaks out for dinner with the kids and there really wasn't a problem, most of the stuff was still really froze. Thank you God.
We ate out yesterday at a fast food and had an opportunity to see some of the damage. It made me realize how petty our problems were. I was hoping a small humbling experience would ensue, but nope, I had a full blown attack of the guilts. We were without power for a day and a half....but it came back on. We had semi-frozen food...but we had food. Since I am a quilter...we had blankets.
