then the sky turned black
wind, rain, hail, lightening and thunder hit us
We thought it was over
and took pictures out the front door
and out the bedroom window, looking south
The storm roared back to life, and raged past midnight. We were lucky; we only have nuisance damage. There is a small washout in the driveway. What little landscaping we have is stripped of leaves. We had a minor flood in the furnace room. And finally, I'm a little annoyed because I had washed every window in the house preparing for company. Gr-r-r.
The horses are fine, although they are annoyed to be confined to stalls and runs until it dries out a bit. The new arena's crusher fines stood up to the storm really well, although there are a couple of places that need work before the sand comes. Sand delivery is postponed until it dries out enough to get heavy trucks out there. Things could have been much worse.
