The first wild spring storm!! The weather radio went off at about 6:30pm while we were doing chores and it said the storm and tornado was about 30 miles east of us and was moving fast!
I was in the middle of milking And Bottle feeding! Yep milking one handed and feeding with the other!! Everyone was high strung because of the storm and winds blowing. I had about 5 bottle babies at a time under my skirt trying to hide!! Kind of hard to move like that!!. The others were eating their alfalfa pellets and babies were nursing like crazy. Then the Sirens went off in town! Talk about total Chaos!! That's the first time they went off since we lived here. Talk about freaking out the goats! The main herd headed for the barn at a high rate of speed!! lol Kyle was feeding and watering everyone down there and I guess they were going crazy.
My girls were at my mom's so they were at the neighbor's basement house there. So I didn't have to worry about them. I am glad because they would have totally flipped out, poor country girls don't know about living so close to town! LOL The sirens would have raised anxiety levels for sure... I am sure we will hear them some more though.
I didn't know but this is called Tornado Week here in Missouri. I guess with the weather changes and all that we have more chances of Tornadoes. Oh Yeah!! On top of the winds we had about 2 inches of rain dumped in less than 20 minutes! Its was ankle deep in the front yard. And then the storm was gone!
We got about 5 different phone calls in less then 5 minutes of people worried about us. Its nice to be loved!LOL My MIL gets very emotional about it but that's okay I know she was just worried about us. It was a little heart racing crazy for a little bit and then over! But everything is okay. Only a little wind damage here and there. Shoooo. Its suppose to Snow Saturday! Yuck Yuck Yuck! lol And back to the 60's next week! I hope everyone has a good day!!
