No, we didn't get blown away to a different state yesterday; though we came close I guess. They said there was "rotation" in the clouds overhead, but nothing touched down in our area. I guess it was pretty bad in the town that is WEST of us, not east as I said in previous post. About 20 houses were flattened, according to one account we heard, and 4 business were destroyed.
In the bigger town east of us a school bus was turned over; only the driver and an aid were on it. No one was injured. So far we haven't heard of anyone having been killed locally, but that may have changed since last night.
At any rate it was pretty bad, no matter what. We keep finding pieces of vinyl siding and papers and things around the place.
The power went off last night right when I was going to fix supper, so I had raw meat for meatballs sitting around. I put it in the fridge, but cleanup didn't happen for awhile. We had tuna sandwiches.
The power stayed off until after the usual chore time (which is generally 4:30 PM), we were up at MILs having birthday cake; it was hubby's sister's birthday, when the power came on at a bit after 6 PM. We came home and did chores anyway. The cows had been down in the bottoms (thankfully they were on the right side of the creek, which had flooded) and some had come up and were looking quizzically around; wondering when they were going to get their own supper.
So all's well on the dairy.
This is April, and the theme for April NaBloPoMo is "letters" which one may interpret however they wish. I was going to do a series of fictitious letters from some teens visiting a dairy, but I don't have the inspiration to begin now. I can if anyone really wants to read it, but only by popular demand. Ha.
