Holy Thunderbolts of Thor!

9 Apr

When I was going out in pasture with the goats last week, I was a bit surprised when I came over the hill and saw what looked like a horrible blast of lightening had hit one of my trees.

I cannot believe how it flung some of those chunks of wood into the ground.

I’m really glad that no goats were out in pasture when it happened.

They were certainly curious about this wood being flung all over their pasture.

It was good for horn/head scratching though.

I actually think I know when it happened.  One night just as I went to bed, there was a huge clap of thunder that made the dog whine and the kitten flew out of my bed in absolute terror.  Now I know why it was so loud.  My phone did also warn me that there was a lightning strike within a few miles of Eden Hills too.  Might have been a little off in its distance.

Stormy Skies

18 Jul

We’ve had several storms in the last week or so that has really helped with how dry we are.  They’ve also given us beautiful skies.

Sadly, there’s been some damage around the state.  I’m lucky.  The only damage I’ve had is my peach tree.

I’m still crossing my fingers that I can get the peaches from it this year.  peach tree_1666ews

Then I’ll have to take it down.  The storms are going to be out of the forecast after tomorrow, but then the heat is back.

We’re going to have dangerous heat for the last half of the week.

The temps are going to be in the upper nineties with tropical humidity.  Hopefully, it doesn’t last for long.

If you want to join me for Friday’s Hunt this week, I’ve put the items at the top of my side bar.
