calm before the storm

This video taken around 6PM, and by the time I was done with my chores the sky was dark and the wind was picking up. Looks like this all starts out with a bang here, the pregame is a series of heavy thunderstorms and the real show starts early in the morning. Prayers and thoughts out there for all in the path, may it be swift and understated.

Prayers and thoughts winging their way towards you Jenna. In my part of the country, besides fire, we just have earthquakes. I cannot imagine what it would be like if we knew one was on the way - "In two hours you will experience a 6.0. Hang on."

You are doing GREAT! And we, your readers, are there with you thanks to your video (fab BTW) and in spirit.

Any pics of the work done on the sheep shed to help it weather the storm?

Thanks for the update. Will look to hear from you tomorrow, if you can. We've had wind and rain ALL day (Salisbury, MD) and we are expecting the worst just a bit later this evening. Still have power, but don't expect that to remain all night. Hope you guys will be okay.

You and yours are in our prayers, we have been checking all day to see an update. We are so proud of how prepared you are and all you have done to get where you are. It is so nice to see how many are out there, for you, when you really need love and support. You are a lucky girl to have such a following. Prayers and blessings are sent to you.

Hopefully your rain is less than expected, all your animals are fine and your power is only out briefly, if at all.

All your preparation could give you such a lovely break tomorrow if Ilene minds her manners.

Take good care.

Stay safe all, looking forward to hearing back from you Monday or thereabouts. Here's hoping the damage is minimal.

Echoing the others, thanks for the update. If you KNOW you will get rain, put a large tub or horse trough under a downspout for easy filling. I wouldn't drink it, but the critters will and it will flush a toilet very nicely.

For me, the hardest part of weathering this storm would be to be on my own, as you are. I hope that you can sense us all with you in spirit Jenna.

Well we just made it through the worst of the storm (on the Eastern Shore of MD). Lots of rain and wind, and a few tornado warnings at the very beginning, but really not much damage. There are lots of people without power, but I only lost power for a little over an hour. There's lots of open farmland here, so maybe if there were more trees it would have been worse. Irene seemed calmer than everyone forecasted. Hopefully she'll just give you lots of rain and not much else Jenna. :-)
