After the storm...

Seriously, I get it.  I washed my car, we bought a new shiny barn red car, I washed all the windows in the house, Dave washed the windows in the barn, AND I picked up every stick in the yard.....all in the matter of two days.   Yes, we were playing with fate!

At 5 a.m. this morning -- heard a whistling -- then saw the grape vine that had been climbing the chimney blowing across the window next to it.  We awoke to a mess...followed by two hours of picking up tree limbs....with three downed branches that will await the chain saw.  As I was out in the storm wrestling with our umbrella table on the back deck  -- can attest to the fact that these were STRONG winds.  Came out of the north east...think the house held them off from the apple orchard.

Only concession was that we were O.K., the animals were all O.K. and the wrens were singing their symphony again.


Reminder, Barn Sale Give-Away ends tonight...
see two posts below for the details.

Kari,
Wind storms are so scarey! I'm glad everyone is OK.
Our creaky old hickory trees remind us every year that they control the amount of yard we do.
I can see the new stairs into the barn have a handrail now. Looks good! :)

So glad your safe! Northfield had a tornado last week. We only lost a few branches.. nothing big...
Have a super week!

I tell you, one of the hardest parts about picking up after this storm is the humidity. At one point my glasses steamed up so I couldn't see what I was reaching for!

Jani...yes - the stairs have a handrail now -- will post new pictures soon!!
