..all this talk about lightning seems to have conjured up some for us. It rained and lightninged (is that a word?) for two hours straight this p.m.
Scary stuff. Just about the time we went out to feed it started up and by the time we were done we were running around like hunchbacks trying to make smaller targets.
Fred was out with the goats when one hit so close it about split my eardrums. He had just told me to turn the water on so he could fill their water tub, 'bout that time he said...
"Shut the water back off! He11 with 'em, their fixin' to get all the water they can use", and here he came running across the pasture his knuckles dragging the ground. I had to laugh. Looked like something straight out of planet of the apes.
What a display, beautiful scary.
