    A thunder storm slammed my place today. With blind rage, mother nature pushed trees down, ripped siding from our house, flung various lawn furniture into the pasture.

    My poor girls and one guy sure were muddy:

    Even found a stray cow in the hayfield:

    It was one of those storms that ends by continuing to rain when the sun returns:

    Lots of mud:

    Strange things pop up after a storm:

    The evening mist rises and the sun sets to a nice cool evening:

    I'm glad you all are okay. Mother Nature can be rather scary at times.

    Nobody was harmed during the storm. Well, these unlucky hornets will have to die so the hubby can put the siding back in place.

    The only time I've seen your beautifully conditioned chickens looking somewhat unkempt. [​IMG]

    Went past the East end of the Sourland Mts and saw the evening mist rising from them. As a kid I always looked for the source-- quite certain that the 'steam' must be volcanic in origin. [​IMG]
