80 acres: post-storm work [May. 19th, 2008|10:24 am]
[Current Mood |awake]

Though we hope Michael gets more hours soon (or another job with more hours) it's really nice to have some help around the place...he's been cutting up downed limbs and hauling the pieces down to the brushpile in the lower gully.   There's still a lot to be done that's all Richard's...chainsawing the big limbs off the broken trees on/near the trails, for instance.   The yard tree damage is mostly taken care of, but there's the small orchard (peach tree broken limbs) and then the trail stuff--there's a big hackberry down across the fence on the north side of the west grass, right onto the main north-fence trail, a big osage orange limb down just across the creek at Tractor Ford, and limbs down on two trees on the south fenceline.

I am so hoping that a storm like that one doesn't come through Kerrville during the festival.

I hope so too! I wouldn't want to be camping out in a storm with 3-4 inch hailstones whacking the tent (I had a heavy canvas tent once that would *probably* have been OK, but the nylon ones, no.)

I shall hope good weather for you for the duration.

Central Texas has such "interesting" weather this time of year that I know we'll have something.

In the past, tents have exploded and pop-ups have been blown over. And, with Kerrville's hard soil and big storms, there are always plenty of tents blown down. Hence my photo-set, How To Pitch A Tent In Texas. (

With festival weather as unpredictable and extreme as it is, I do like sleeping in the truck. It's quite snug and cozy in there.

The branches down bring back memories of the ice storm we had in January 2007. We still have a few trees with broken branches in them that we haven't gotten to.
