Checking the Fences

By Veronica Arnold

After the winds died down somewhat but not gone, it was time to go outside and check the farm. Horses escaped their pen and was in the sheep pen, the sheep was hiding in the horse pen, and the chickens were squawking a storm.

Pens were tossed over, and once we got everyone back into their areas we checked the fence lines to see if trees took out fences which would let the cows out. I didn't see any compromised fences where it matters but there were trees down all over.

We were surveying the areas. Thankful to be safe and home relatively fine, we were able to see the beautiful sunset and observing there was beauty even in ugly things.

Check on your neighbors. Let's roll up our sleeves and help each other out. Prayers for linemen tonight to be safe as they work hard to restore power.
