We Are Deep In the Heart of Texas

Nomadic seasons of farming adventures with nature thrown in to include; a pinch of family, snippets of friends, counting our blessings, paying IT forward, home school, and the spicy things I decide to rant about.

When God Hiccups

(Double click to see a enlarged image.)

Yesterday at 2:30 ish p.m.; a tornado touched down near George West. This is pictures from my back yard showing the storm moving behind our property. Two truckers were blown over on the bridge leading into George West on highway 59. We are very fortunate because this is spring break week---Zephyr, Saenz and I drive on this bridge four times a day during the school week. In all, only one with minor injuries and four damaged big rigs. The area lost power for up to three hours.
I feel very blessed no one was seriously hurt.
Thoughts from inside the coop......
