We have experienced some severe Thunderstorms the past few afternoons.
Yesterday the sky turned black and a huge gust of wind blew the chairs, plants and hens off the porch.
It was a microbust that had the trees bending over and all kinds of debris flying through the air.
It looked a little like the tornado scene in the Wizard of Oz around here, for a few moments.
I got away from the windows.
Then the rain came hard and fast.
As soon as it subsided I ran outside to check on hens and vehicles.
I found the 2 Comet chicks walking around the yard, confused. They were suppose to be in the chicken tractor....
As I walked towards the chicken coop I saw the "chicken Winnebago" tipped over and stuck in the water ditch.
I am very surprised that it wasn't picked up and taken further away, like my chairs were.
Thankfully, the big white pen blew over and the chicks walked out, unharmed.
I tried to upright it, but it was too heavy and awkward for me to be able to do alone.
I made a phone call to my 2 garden pals and they came and up righted it quickly.
Some minor damage was fixed and the 2 Comet chicks put back in.
More storms coming this afternoon too.
So, I have to find a way to secure the chicken tractor so it doesn't end up flying to the next town.
Have you been getting severe weather where you are?
