More Crazy Weather Damage

Yesterday we had a massive wind storm that resulted in even more property damage. It's been a crazy year with the massive hail storm resulting in over $30,000 worth of property damage and now this wind storm.

You can how big the shelter was in the last picture, the same size as the one that is still standing.

It's fusturating and I really hope this is the end of it for the year, but I am still very thankful that my family, friends and critters are all safe.

I just moved Dillon out of that pen days before, they still had accsess to that pen but thankfully were not in there when it happened.

Whew! Despite all the bad weather, you've gotta believe that someone was watching out for you and yours this summer.

Yeah we came the the conclusion that something/someone was watching over us.

I'm speechless . So so sorry that you have to undergo this again.

Luckily none got injured and hope you've a good insurance.

Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

OMG. This is just odd that you are having all the weather that we should be having at this point. Hmmm, has anyone seen that movie "The day after tomorrow"? The weather is starting to get completely out of control.

Tiff, I am so glad that everyone is okay and I'm sorry that somehow mother nature got mixed up and sent you our weather. She sent you our summer, now watch; she'll probably send us your winter. LOL.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

Wow. *takes note to stay away from Tiff's bad luck*
I'm so sorry another patch of bad luck hit you - how miserable is that? I hope everything's quick and easy to deal with, and please do let me know if I can help at all.

Bad luck, while that is bad it could have been allot worse. that stuff could have been replaced. i am glad it was not worse than what it was.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.

Scary!!! Glad to hear everyone (and the critters) are safe
