When we woke up this morning
the sun was shining bright and hot.
It was a beautiful Saturday morning
everyone was out and about.
I hadn't intended to head to the farm early
because there was rain in the forecast.
But with the warmth of the sun,
I just couldn't resist.
There is so much to do to get ready for
the new baby goats.
I left the girls at home.
They both work at 5:00 and then have a slumber party after work.
I figured their day would be full enough.
Within 30 min of arriving at the farm,
this is what the sky looked like.
I just had to go grab my camera.
The clouds were so picturesque
A few hours later the girls called to say
a huge hailstorm had hit the town.
One window on the house was broken out
there was hail piled everywhere and tree leaves all over the porch.
They said no one was supposed to be driving
and the county was under a tornado watch.
The farm is 35 miles north,
and there was a breeze and spitting rain.
This is what I saw coming into town.
Driveway next to the house.
Front of house.
I am wondering how hard this will be to clean up.
Looks pretty sticky.
The girls took photos during the storm.
But they took them on their iPods and
I don't know how to access them.
It was pretty intense.
I am glad they are brave and capable
(they brought my garden plants in off the porch)
So that's the excitement for today.
My mom called me from Wyoming,
they had been watching the storm on radar
and saw it was right over us.
My "middle" daughter is on her way to NY.
She is going to be a Nanny for the summer.
She has been texting us as she goes through each state.
She told me that if I ever move again
I need to go to Philadelphia.
She said it is exactly what I would love.
Green like a forest with farms scattered throughout.
She said NE is great, but Philly is what we see only in magazines.
This is Sara and her boyfriend Jake,
who is driving her out there and flying back.
I took this the evening before they left.
Be safe Sara.
Miss you already.
