The Tornado!

Recently a tornado has passed near our farm. It began in the middle of the night. When we woke up in the morning our farm was in chaos.

Our 8' fence was in many places, ripped out of the ground.


Here's a picture of our chicken coop that was tipped up.


Our 4x4 truck even got stuck in the mud.


We had to call our neighbor to help us out.



Here is a picture of our road flooded with water!
