    This spring time ritual of dodging tornadoes has often found me so used to the fluctuations that I become complacent.
    Until something like the storms in Moore, Grapevine and Cleburne happen.
    Then you have my undivided attention, again.
    I still would not live anywhere else in the US. Shalom

    We had a nice slow soaking rain today! Not sure when it started, but it was about the time I left the house this morning. And, just stopped about an hour ago. No hail, no strong winds! Just wish there was more, but beggars can't be choosers

    Asked for today off today because there was a huge yard project that needed to be done. So I drive up to my barn this morning around 7:30 to feed and there are no less than 8 police squad cars there, a sheriff car, and I see men walking around with K-nines. We had something weird and violent happen at my barn last fall and today was the day that our barn manager was going to court about it. So I calmly park and find a familar face, only to find out that the police are doing a field exercise on our property with the dogs
    today
    With all the nerve wracking events lately I can't say I wasn't scared!
    Good for you TBJ with the tornado plan at the barn. Yesterday I had heard bits and pieces about Oklahoma when I was out at our barn but I didn't really know what the weather was going to do here. It got really dark and cloudy and started thundering and lightning and then sirens went off. As it turned out there must have been a bad fire or wreck or something because they stopped after about five minutes. But it did make me wonder what I would do out there in the event of a tornado.

    TG yes let's share our meet and greet info, names etc. It would be practical as the date approaches. We could always PM each other.
    Good luck everybody with the storms this evening. They passed by here with just some rain.

    So hubby said he wanted german choc cake cupcakes this time instead of a big cake - but he wanted them cut in half with the filling in the middle, and then more on top.

    I found one of those HUGE muffin tins - where one side of the tin is the top (cone swirl shape) of the muffin and the other end is the pleated bottom of the muffin. So he will get his cupcake cut in half with filling in the middle and slathered on top....the only catch is that it is big enough to feed five. LOL!

    The baby goat is taking MORE steps - he can stand to pee but then sprawls out again soon after. The hairless, bruised areas are starting to slough skin where the skin is purple, and it is oozing. I imagine that in a couple of days it will be open sores b/c the skin actually died. This confirms it for me that he had something cutting off circulation on that leg for too long. But I keep going out there every few hours and working the ankle open and closed, then the hock/knee then the hip. He doesn't complain, but it does him good b/c it is always after that 'physical therapy' session that he gets up and takes a few steps.

    We are supposed to get some rain here tonight - I hope so - the ground is cracking again.

    Everyone be safe tonight. There are some severe thunderstorm, hail, and possibly tornado conditions through my area and the surrounding. =(

    Kctop I am fine we were without internet for most of the afternoon.
    The farm has survived without much damage.
    Jesus and Miquel report all is well and a few limbs and trees down. I will drive up tomorrow to get a look around.
    My brother and I are going to donate round bales for livestock owners in Moore and the surrounding area. We can't get into the field now to load hay for a couple of days. Too muddy to get the trailer out also.
    This has been a crazy year for weather.
    Mother Nature has a way to humble us all. Shalom

    Geez it takes a lot to get me, but I am so down about the destruction due to tornadoes lately, and then there was the West fertilizer plant disaster. I saw photos posted on HF of horses in the aftermath of Moore and it is so hard to not be able to do anything to help other than pray.
    We have a blood drive at my high school tomorrow and I texted all the people I know to go by and donate in hopes that it will help somehow. I will go on my lunch hour, even though I can never get my hemoglobin up high enough to donate. I have a fairly rare blood type, AB positive, so maybe they will cheat and let me give!

    The most needed blood type right now is O negative. And you can donate money to the reputable charities, like Red Cross, Salvation Army, United Way, etc. You could probably also contact vet clinics and animal shelters to see what they could use.
