Tornado Warnings

It's all about water.  Lots of water.
It rained off and on all day and by this afternoon we were given tornado warnings.

The farrier arrived at 1pm on the button to trim Abbe and Berlin.

 When he left, the pups had a chance to go outside in between raindrops.

Around 4:30 I was watching radar on the news channel and it looked like the bad weather was getting close to us.  Heavy rains, possible hail, winds up to 70 miles per hour and the tornado warning.  I had just taken a shower, put my boots on and it was an absolute downpour by the time I got to the barn.  Of course the girls were goofy about going in.  They could feel something.

 While I was in the barn Karen arrived and said the weather was even worse in the village.

The pond is back.  The house roof is leaking.
We did not get hail, the winds were in the high 40s and I decided to post 
this early in case the power goes out.  Hopefully the worst is over.
Lake Ontario is 15 inches above normal and the water is approaching the beachfront houses in some areas.  Is this the way it's going to be?
If anything interesting happens, I will add a PS later.
Night all.


  1. Hope you are all safe, those inside and those in their other houses, ( the equine ones) and it soon passes overhead. No "p.s." so maybe all is not as bad as predicted.

  2. Yikes. Hide under the bed

  3. Oh, Lori, I hope it was a peaceful and uneventful evening. We had similar weather, but no tornado warnings. Thankfully today it is all gone, and the day could not be any more of a glorious one - I hope it is for you as well.
