    thanks to well wishes.

    It will be several hours before the storm peaks at our place and it probably probably wont hit Romblon - mrs pigs island province til early morning.

    Bernie and Analou have been told that no goat pig chicken or water bufallo is more important than they are and be prepared to evacuate if needed.

    In the meantime, in Cavite where Mrs Oz has been staying is expecting winds to 50mph but schools are canceled because of flood risks, Mrs Oz is buying me drums that she will use as packing crated and I will use on farm. She spotted IBC 1000 liter containers for $95 and now she is plotting lol. My wife is such an enabler.................

    LOL, I can so relate to this. We hatched our babies in early June, with the intent of modifying a shed on the property into a coop and run. Well those chicks lived in my house for many more weeks than I wanted them to. After a couple of weeks, I started carrying them outside to a small baby gate pen I had set up, which I covered with a mesh tarp to keep them in there. Then at night, I'd bring them back in. Eventually, hubby built their run, so they'd go out into the run during the day, and then I'd carry them back into their baby box. Hubby finished their coop towards the end of the summer. If I had waited for hubby to build the coop and run before hatching my chicks, I'd still not have any chickens. ;-)

    I've been through a couple of Hurricanes, myself, but none were ever really very terrible. I grew up in RI and was 11 yrs old when Hurricane Bob hit. I remember the damage and the trees down. I remember the eye passing us and it cleared up and we went outside for a bit but then had to come back in. We relocated to upstate NY and so were not in RI last year for Sandy. Even as far inland as we are now, we still had some damage to our property from Sandy. Siding that rippled and led to water leaking into the walls. And our trampoline blew clear across our property, just missed my husband who was tying down the tarps on our woodpile.

    Keep us posted Pig.
