June 14, 2008 – Nearby Tornado Cell

We had a nice day – no rain, but heavy rain and hail just missed us when a supercell passed to our north a few miles.


This is a look at the backside of the storm just after a tornado warning was issued. The whitish part nearing the ground to the left of the farmstead in the distance is what everyone was worried about. We were so grateful we were spared more rain or wind damage.


As the barn and chicken coop are sopping wet with manure and water and the first hay cutting has not yet been made, I improvised and found some bedding along the road! It was easy to pick up and I hauled five truckloads home from within a mile of our house for the barn and coop.


The chickens are enjoying their new bedding, complete with seeds to peck at for fun and nutrition!
