The "ladies" Big Loss

I'm not talking weight here, I talking about the "ladies" being homeless.  The previous post had pictures of the chicken coop that was installed on our property in April.  Today's post has the most recent pictures of the "ladies" home after a tropical storm passed through our neighborhood last night.  Thankfully, no one was injured - not us or the "ladies", just their new home.  Amazingly, this giant limb had missed our big shed - I don't know how, but it did.   And we are thankful that it was just a limb and not the whole tree.  We had some water in the just recently finished basement due to a window-well that filled with about 8 inches of water in less than 1/2 an hour.  We also had a 10 hour power outage and had to clean up in the basement in the dark with flashlights.  Tony, our truly wonderful neighbor, came right on over with a generator to hook up our basement water pump.  All in all, we managed to get through it thanks to God and Tony.   I can not even comprehend what it is like to be in the midst of the destruction that recently happened in the Mid-West!  

There were a couple of the "ladies" who insisted
on laying eggs "Al Fresco" . . .

They were really complaining - hard time getting into their home!!!

As I said, we were so fortunate not to have this mammoth tree limb hit our home!  My husband and son are off buying a chain saw to see if they can rescue anything!  Just praying that they can handle the chain saw!  Hopefully the "ladies" are not in too - much shock and will not be homeless too long!

good wishes until next time . . .
