Surprise Thunderstorm

24 Jul

I know that the weather can sometimes be unpredictable, but today’s storm seemed to come out of nowhere.  I know they said very slight chance this evening and then too hot to have rain.  Um.  Tell that to the goats that got stuck out in pasture when the storm hit.  I didn’t even get my boys’ tarp on the north side.  Luckily, it came mostly from the east, and they weathered it well.

Sorry for the crappy cell phone picture.

Stella didn’t fare so well.  I think she’s a bit unhappy with the goats taking over her greenhouse.  I didn’t go look, but it seems they might have taken over the dog house too.  Poor pup.

The hay also did not need 1/2 – 3/4 inches of rain just as my nephew was getting ready to rake it.


The sunflower is pretty though.


See, I found a silver lining.

      It does. I got to see how amazingly well the building pad handled a lot of water in a short amount of time. Looks good!

    bummer on the hay! stella’s gonna take a while to dry out by the looks of it. 🙂

      Definitely. She doesn’t usually mind rain, but she’s getting older. Dry seems better to her now.

    Stella looks very unhappy in that moment.

      Dry seems better as she gets older.

    Poor Stella.

      She’s a trooper, but she does appreciate dry more and more as she gets older.

      I swear sometimes, she has sad hound dog eyes.

    Silver linings do come in brilliant yellow. 🙂

      Way too many silver linings with all the storms lately. I’d be happy to have some real sun.
