I'm on my way out to the barn to check on my girls. It's supposed to be hot today and I want to make sure they have plenty of water before I take off. Have a wonderful day and I'll talk to you when I get home.
We had a wonderful day together with family. We ate at the Mongolian Grill for lunch and had a great meal and fine, fine company. Then it was off to one of Lexington's parks where we had games, fun and food.
We left to go back home about 5:30 p.m. and were quite concerned because of the weather reports we were hearing. We got about 20 minutes from home and it commenced to downpouring and lightning up a major storm. It was scary. When we left Lexington it was 91 and by the time we got halfway home it was 97, so it was a lot warmer here and obviously, that was effecting the weather - and then the rain hit. We got home and I jumped out of the car and opened the garage for our car to be pulled in, then Hubby ran for the truck to put it in the shop and drove my van out to the barn. We were trying to keep any kind of hail off of the vehicles if it was at all possible. I ran out to the barn before him to check on my chickens and open the gates. We were soaked - tee totally soaked but we weren't hit by lightning and the vehicles were as safe as they could be. My girls were roosting and looked fine so I just left them alone.
We both came back in the house, shucked our wet clothing and got on something dry. Now, finally, I think we're just going to call it a day. It's 9:15. Time enough for a cup of tea and two huge sighs of relief. We're home, safe and all is well . . . for now!!
