    I'm sorry to hear that. I was just talking to Mrs. Flock this weekend about how I need to reinforce my roofs in case of snow this winter

    Thanks, everyone... is my fault, missed securing that one with all the moves and stuff this weekend...

    WV, we live on a bare hill on the sides of the 'funnel' leading down to the valley... we get the ground scraping gusts here...

    Most were gonna be culled, but that's not how it should have happened... :(

    On a good note, the 2 broody Silkies and all the babies I moved out to the Silkie pen are fine... was worried the whole lot of them would get blown off the face of the earth... :gig

    They've all still got their feet on the ground...

    That sucks for sure. Not a nice way to go. But we learn from freak stuff like that, and as they say... chit happens.


    Glad there is a good note, and they are safe. Imagine the fluff they would have left behind... [​IMG]

    I had a Gulf trip booked but they didn't have enough paying customers to go out. So we went on the bay fishing trip, they could not find a fish in 4 hours. We'll rent a pontoon and guide ourselves later this week.

    you might try either one of these guides if ya'll still want to fish.

    Capt Ernest (www.tightlinescharters.com) knows big texas snook, and is a great guy. I've met and talked with him, but never fished with him, but I've never heard a negative thing said about him or his fishing.

    Capt Tricia (www.skinnywateradventures.com) I have fished with, and is an outstanding guide and put us on tons of fish. Beware tho, because I know first hand she is hardcore fishing, so be prepared to grind it out if you want to.



    either one of those guides know the area, and can find fish in just about any circumstances.


    they both also write for a Texas saltwater rag.
