August 13th Storm

First of all, sorry I've been neglecting this blog. I'll try to better in the future and I will be doing a mega-post soon with the various things we have done this summer.  This post however is about the storm that came through a few days ago. The storm didn't have much hail or lightning, but it sure had the wind and the rain. It lasted for 30 minutes and in that time 2.4 inches fell in the rain gauge. I say that because with all the wind, I'm not sure how much we actually got. Dad had gone to the river to get a load of hay with the truck and got a flat tire on the front of the truck. He was about five mile from our house, but he didn't get any rain down there. We had to hurry down and get him before the creek came up though. That shows just how isolated this storm was. 

The storm rolling in.

It was raining the hardest I have ever seen.

Right after it quit raining.

These were taken at least an hour after it quit raining.

The day after the storm came through, Danny and I went out to fix the fences in the creeks and found this. There was trash piled up in what was left of the fence. It took us most of the afternoon to fix it.
