As you've probably heard by now, Ike is due to hit the coast of Texas beginning tomorrow evening and continuing through Saturday. Ike is huge in size!
I'd love to post a ton right now, but we are busy little bees around here gearing up for the storm. You see, our farm is located about 1.5 hours northwest of Houston. They think the eye of the hurricane will even pass through these parts so we are preparing for the worst.
What does one do with a herd of cattle, pigs, a gazillion chickens, goats, some cats, and a rowdy dog named 'Rowdy' do when a huge hurricane is headed for them????
We don't know exactly.
But, we are preparing as best as we can and know how. Things are pretty crazy in our little town right now.
Keep our farm and family in your prayers. Jason was scheduled to work Saturday with the Houston Fire Dept, but has paid a replacement so that he doesn't have to leave us here all by our lonesome. I'm so thankful he will be here! Also, pray for everyone down here in Texas in the path of the storm. I will update you as I can.
I will leave you with photos of our newly remodeled barn. We had it painted our official farm green and some new glorious barn doors put on the front not only to keep all of the critters out, but also to spruce it up a bit. There is also a new concrete slab to the right of it under a porch.
