It’s Been a Month . . .   1 comment

. . . since I blogged.  It’s been a busy, interesting month, not least because of the weather.  A couple of days ago, we had a good rain.  It even included a hailstorm; something we almost never see in winter.

When I heard the rattle on the roof, I grabbed my camera and bolted for the door.  It was just starting.

The horses take a dim view of their tin-roofed shelters when it’s hailing, and as you can see by looking through the breezeway, stood out in the storm the whole time.

The clouds quickly took on an ominous yellow hue.  You can actually see the hail coming down in these shots, either as dark or white streaks and dots, depending on the background.

It was over very quickly, but left us with a decent third of an inch.  It’s not a great deal, but it’s a start.

I hope to do better on my blogging in the upcoming days, but after all, it is nearly Christmas!

  1. Glad to see you back on the blog. Here south of you in Simi Valley we have had rain and now very high winds. For our horses we thought of putting wind block plastic fabric on the sides of their pens. We got some in a interesting sand color and are in the process of putting it up. Now I feel better about them being able to lie down at night and being sheltered.
