When It Rains It Pours

That is how it goes with the weather in North Texas it seems. We go for weeks on end without rain and then, 6 inches in less than 24 hours - and a twister to top it all off!

Thankfully this time, it was about a mile away and didn't do any damage to my farm. I was up in the same oak hay loft that had saved the lives of the horses from the roof that collapsed on that barn only a few short years before when a spring tornado wasn't as friendly to us. I took a few pictures and said a few prayers up there yesterday.

We'll know in a few weeks if the only damage was some felled old dead trees near the pond when the seeds I planted on Monday emerge - or if they washed on down the creek into the Trinity.

A fellow farmer wrote this;
"We farmers live with the weather. It is our friend and our aggravation, something we spend our days thinking about, cannot change, and often complain about. We surround ourselves every day in the heat or the cold, the drought or the flood. Sounds a lot like love to me."
