You think that was bad, you should have seen the barn.

Why thank you Bev. We did not think we were winners at the time. This all happened December 21, 2015 when a wind storm blew through. It took months to get the barn and house repaired. Luckily the damage to the house was minimal but the barn was bad.

Oh, I have a mountain of those.

Luckily the horse was outside the barn and this tree fell across the paddock and kept her out of danger.

This what her stall looked like inside the barn.

I'm so glad the horse was safe, Melissa! We used to raise Paints back in the 80's. I miss them, but not enough to do it again!

Oh yeah! It was great fun. Here is the one that missed the house.

I hope you don't have any more storms like that, Melissa! One year we were visiting my sister in Washington state. A windstorm knocked over a huge tree on her house. It took a lot of work and a long time before her place was back to normal.

Well, we cut down the remaining trees so nothing more can hit the house. We hope.
