I'm such a big behind these days with so much piling up, but I had to put that aside and just plain check in on my farmgirl friends. How are you all? This weather has been crazy and I've read some very sad stories... Praying you are all snug n safe after the latest tornadoes n flooding.
This was our time. Usually the small creek in our front pastures rises n falls fast... Yesterday it rose n rose n rose! Our farm flooded worse than during even our worst hurricanes... Guess the ground's already sooo wet and the rains so great... And when we finally thought it safe to drive the kids to school we were invited in to sit in the hallways while another tornado warning passed. Although we live far from the Baltimore metro TV stations they named our road during tornado watches and a news helicopter filmed our small flooding! We felt so blessed that our buildings are set up high. And that our old house is made with three stout courses of brick. Still, we were ready to hit the cellar any second. Thanks be to God we were spared any real damage. Some of our neighbors had water at their back doors.
Although our horses looked cold n tucked up (after 83* sun beforehand) I was more worried 'bout the cows n geese that nestle near the creek down the road. I wonder if the poor geese lost their eggs?
Amazingly we were able to watch a momma cow give birth right beside the road on our way home from school. What a blessing indeed! Excuse the blurred pics. I think my Droid was a bit damp. ;-)
The calf and the sun rose. The water went down.
