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.

Wake Up to a Weather Alert

ACK! Seems Tropical Storm Alex has been busy during the night. I woke to find this email from Governor Perry's Office.

So off I trot over to NHC @ NOAA to see the path because once the storm tracks into the HAWTER deep waters of the Gulf; they tend to pick up strength. http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/
The next 24 hours will determine how the storm will land either way looks like we fall into the right side of the storm no matter where it will make land fall.  Another point, since our internet service provider has its servers housed in Brownsville; we may be off line after Wednesday. 
I guess this afternoon hubby and I will be doing FOD walks to ensure no loose tools, toys, branches and such items will become missiles.  Saying a little prayer for those who have already lost lives, been affected, and are in the path of this storm.

Stay safe, I know you know the drill! This is going to make a mess in more ways than one, isn't it?

Hi there! I found you on localharvest.org while looking for grass-fed beef / free range chicken raised locally around Pleasanton. What are you raising these days?

Nekkid Chicken said...

Yes Mrs. Sharon,

We are battening down. ACK


Nice to meet ya. We are 45 miles So of Pleasanton. We are raising guinea fowl, americana, and buffs. This is our rebuilding year for hens. We dabble in pig, rabbit, and goat raising as well. I will head to your blog now if you have one.
