When The Wind Damages
It’s been three months now and a renewed appreciation of things we take for granted. Electric. Refrigerator and freezers. We just got an oven and stove hooked up today. ..improving over a hot plate which was more convenient than a wood fired grill! From a food standpoint it has shaped what you may see some of here. For those catching up, here’s an earlier in the summer post from the farm blog. Thanks for bearing with us through a challenging time. Don’t forget about us!
Many have noticed the sudden disappearance of posts on social media and, due to access, this blog. On June 8, a sudden but brief storm rearranged SlowMoneyFarm.
We had to immediately get past shock to survival. Rebuilding has begun but it will be a long, long time coming. Trees were down, and crushed the mobile into the living room and kitchen. Our story, in more detail, is in a GoFundMe page. We were very, very lucky.
The open hole was cut away to rescue the birds inside that pen. All survived.
It buried one pen, destroyed several others and turned birds loose with the tree’s roots creating massive holes in the landscape. Photos taken in the wake of the storm seem like a dream, only it’s real. It’s too real.
We are ok. We had lost some animals in the heat, and stress, following, but we’re ok. Physically.
