We had a wicked wind blow through here yesterday evening right about suppertime. This picture is of the garage with my baby sitting in it. Yes that is a 2X4 sitting inside of it. Thank God the window was down.
We used to have a carport...it got spread over a country mile.
Got to know a few of our neighbors yesterday evening as well. Thought I was going to have to have a cookout the power was out so long, but my sister in law came over and we loaded up a cooler for her to fill Mom's freezer with. Whew!
The ranch hands that live next door to us were playing domino's in their barn when the roof came off of it. Those guys were a little scared. It took the barn down to about 4 feet.
Amazingly nobody got hurt that I know of. There were baby cow igloos all over the place. They have about 10 acres of baby cow houses and upset baby cows everywhere. There was a lot of shooting going on until the wee hours of the morning. We were hoping that it wasn't them having to put injured animals down. The ones we saw were good, just upset.
My baby kitten has been an unhappy camper all night long.
I think I'm a bit of an unhappy camper too. Grateful that it wasn't worse than it was, though. And a little shell shocked.
It is bizarre when one second things are cool and the next, buildings are flying around everywhere.
Somebody could have told me about the wind in Texas. I guess you get used to it, but damn.
