Storm Damage Leaves A Big Mess

We are all okay, including the horses, goats and chickens, but the storm that came through this morning did a lot of tree damage.
What a mess.  Besides a lot of broken branches, we had four trees come down completely.

Yes, I think we had a tornado come through.

My garden took a hit.

The 6 foot high sugar snap peas where completely knocked down to the ground.  Hopefully, I can set them back upright.  I'll have to start canning those peas tomorrow.

Roses took a beating, some stripped of every petal, but a few hung on.
I can still count my blessings.  At least we have power.  Many neighbors without electricity.  Bill and I rode our bikes and check on several of the neighbors.  Everyone is the area is fine.  No one hurt. 

Well, time to get back to clean up.


  1. Wow, it is amazing what the wind can do! Your property is so beautiful in spite of the damage. Great to know that everyone is well but it looks like you have your work cut out for you. Blessings, Patti

  2. Oh my goodness! Yes, it is such a blessing everyone is safe. It looks like you all have a lot of work ahead cleaning it all up. Amazing that those beautiful roses are still hanging on. Stay safe! Thanks for sharing these pictures and for visiting with me too.

  3. I am so glad that no one was harmed and praise God that you still have joy in the midst of the circumstance. I wanted to let you know that I have an award for you on my blog. Please stop by an pick it up!

    God Bless,
