Blown Away

Yesterday, around 6 in the morning, Adam and I woke up to a huge thunderstorm outside.  Around 6:15, we heard a terrifying noise and discovered this outside:

One of the huge pine trees in the swamp across the street, waterlogged from all the rain we've been getting, came crashing down in the high winds.  It fell across the road and landed about five feet from our front porch.  These are the great PennDot guys who came out to get it off the road (they did, however, leave the bulk of it in our front yard.)

After a bit without power or phone lines, things got sorted out and the sun came out and the rest of the day was pretty decent- a good thing since a lot of it was spent cleaning up the mess left from the storm.

Some pictures:

Nova (Fluffy Nimblekins, Destroyer of Worlds)

Sweet Pea grazing down the front yard (who needs lawn mowers?!)

Hover Lambs!  Charlie and Ed love running mad circles around everything!


Gaia and the gang grazing on grass, finally!

Edmund, with milk on his face

finally, some signs of spring

Charlie's horn buds are coming in

buds on the fruit trees

Adam can't go anywhere with some of his flock underfoot!

  1. Oh, that's horrible about the tree! Lucky it didn't hit your house!

    I just wanted to say thanks for the photos. It makes my day seeing pictures of all your animals :)
