Wondering how everyone made out after the storm?
We had strong winds all day yesterday. The cows weren't quiet at all, moving this way and that just like the wind. It couldn't make up its mind which way to blow. The barn creaked and cracked with the wind during barn chores, the dogs and cats wanted in the house. They know!
Dearest and I were outside until the daylight left. Him dangling from a two story ladder getting the leaves out the eaves, while I sat at the bottom steadying the ladder. Sometimes my weight is of an advantage!
By 8pm the pelting winds and rain hit every window. I closed the shades in the windows to keep the thought out. The wind coming from the east sounded like a train coming across the farm.
Dearest had gone to the city to play hockey and one of my daughters to work. I called her at work at 11pm to tell her to be careful of tree limbs on route home. She said if it were terribly bad she would sleep at my folks, but would text me to let me know. The power had gone out at work and she was on back up generator.
Dearest was home 12:30pm. The brunt of the storm. He said all was good until he came up our concession. Trees where on the road. He moved them to the side, so they were small trees. Daughter home 2:15am, by then the wind was pretty normal. I went to sleep then and up at 4:30am this morning feeling it was already warmer out.
After morning barn chores, I cleared the lane way and branches off the road. Could hear chain saws on the concession. Township work crews at work.
The sun is trying to come through. Weather network says it won't. Rain on the way. I'm okay with that. Hope to get some cooking done, and some cleaning.
