Well, it used to be a hay barn

We had some wild weather here this past Tuesday evening. I drove home from work while some golf ball-sized hailed pounded our Suburban. If I ever get that thing washed, it's likely we'll find some good sized dings. When I finally got home I was greeted by a tree in our driveway. I had to call my manly man to come out in the pouring rain to move it out of the way. We haven't looked at our house to see if the house incurred any roof damage yet but we need to. I heard the next day that we had straight-line winds in this area in excess of 70m.p.h. No tornadoes that I know of, but it turns out you don't need tornadoes to do some real damage.
This used to be my in-laws hay barn.
Now for those of you that don't know this, my husband and I own a wee spit of land in a vast hay field. That hay field is owned by Ron's parents. And so is this barn...or what's left of it.
Some of the stray pieces were carried to the neighbor's pasture. This piece used to be a wall.
This barn is just west of Trixie's stall where she stays at night. She had already been put up when all this happened. I'm so glad she obviously didn't try jumping from her pen again because she was spooked. I guess maybe she just hunkered down and waited it out. It had to make a racket, don't ya' think?

It's amazing when these storms come through - we're just heading into that season! Ugh.
