Missed Us By A Mile

The path of the monstrous tornado missed out place by one mile. We only lost a sheet of roofing of a goat house. One large tree blew down on power lines over the road that runs along our property, one wire broken. We lost power and water. Still had heat as we use gas. The water was resupplied the next day Saturday under boil water order.  Yesterday when they attempted the first time to restore power the line on the ground back the road caught our field on fire. Luckily I had been working at the shop where the fire was headed. The tractor was out and I jumped on it and back drug the edge of the fire with the loader which put the fire out.  My wife had called the fire department and they showed up quickly and put out the fire on the edge of the road and in the ditch. We were fortunate again. We still do not have internet but got power back last night. My wife and daughter went to the library and borrowed a hot spot thing and this will allow us to have internet for the two week loan period. The devastation to our area and the state where these tornadoes hit is almost unbelievable. The one tornado that just missed us started in Arkansas and after passing us went on to Bowling Green about a two hour drive from our home. The amount of destruction and loss of homes, will take a long long time to recoup from. I did go out for and hour and photograph this morning. By the time the sun came up I went home as the importance of taking pictures of the eagles seemed to lose importance to me right now.
