    I got it pretty bad her in Putnam County Florida too. We had heavy rain for 3 days days. Lots of wind that knocked down tons of branches off our oak trees. We have a huge clean up job to do today. I am just happy we hadn't put our new chicks in the coop yet.

    This is day two for us here in Perry, Fl the first day wasnt so bad just alot of rain but it started howling around 2:00AM this morning and has rained ever since. they say we are getting 2-3 inches an hour had a tornado warning as well but other than that just alot of inconvenience as its too wet to do anything. Feeding is a nightmare.

I hauled 3 wheelbarrows of debris out of the run area and cleaned the coops , about 13 inches of rain here Phew... no more for a little while please. Hope everybody is O.K., J
