A Brief Weather Report


We had a mixed bag today. Early chores were met by cloud cover and an occasional sprinkle . Mid morning put the bucks out in their field and we had a brief down pour. Then the clouds parted the wind stopped and the remainder of the day  was down right balmy . Well balmy may be  a bit of an embellishment. Let us just say mix of sun and clouds. Until this came to visit about 6:30 just in time for dinner.

First a sprinkle , then it picked up to metal roof big drops of rain and then it sounded like we were tbeing stoned. Quick check outside , hey I was hungry, pea size hail.Then the pounding got heavier and in the end we had  snow  rather deep hail.

Even the Calli and Ari ventured out on the deck   and left their mark.

  1. I used to live in a home that had a tin roof and the sound of raindrops on the roof brought me so much joy! Not so much the hail though! We had freezing rain here overnight and it's a skating rink out there. I'm grateful for not having to leave the home if I don't want to!

    1. I love that sound. More so with rain than hail. I always think it will give the goats fits in the barns but no they are cool customers. You will know your paradise when you step on it. Such an exciting journey!

  2. Holey moley, what kind of weather are you going to have to contend with next? I don't like hail especially when it occasionally falls in the summer and damages the garden! It can rip things to shreds in minutes.
