We had several severe storms this weekend, both producing winds between 80-100 mph. I must say we were a lot luckier this go around then we were in the September storms however we still have a lot of pickup that will keep us busy for several days. There is stuff everywhere!
The above tree had fairly large branches that fell and as you can see it is very close to the power lines that come in to our house. I am so grateful that this branch missed our line! I am a sucker for no power, and reading by candlelight but only when I am NOT on call at the hospital....
This butterfly bush was replanted after Friday's storms and it looks like I will be replanting it tonight when I get home from work. The wind just ripped it right out of the ground.
Our gardens at home weren't hit very hard with the exception of some herbs, however our corn was all flattened or bent to look like flexi-straws. We worked so hard on the corn and I will sat I am sad about the loss. I think if I replant now it will be too late in the season. Any opinions?!
The animals all weathered the storms well, and Larry and Happy weathered the storms from the couch. Neither was very traumatized....
I learned after trees fell on our cars in September to move our cars to safer ground during the storm. I ran out to move the cars in the middle of the storm so they would be clear of any trees that might fall. I am learning!
I hope you and yours are all safe after this weekend, and here's to happier homesteading in the coming week!
