Quick Update - Tuesday 5/4/21

I haven't posted in a few days so thought I would just give a quick update. We have another day of bad storms here and the internet has been in and out. I just heard some more thunder so hope I get this posted before it lets loose again. I got my tomato plants in the ground. They are getting plenty of water today. We have a flash flood warning out but we are fine here at the house. We also have a tornado watch which should be expiring soon. I just moved the baby chicks out to the grow out pen earlier this morning so the hubby will stop complaining. They are loud and he just turns the television up louder. They should do fine as they are covered and not getting wet. I do need to replace one feeder. It is a new one I bought and not releasing food as it should. This food is very fine crumbles so should not be a problem. I'll empty it and see what I can do to make the feed flow better. Tomorrow we will be out of town for a business meeting - an early dinner. We have about a 3 hour drive so will be getting up and hitting the road. I hope everyone had a nice day and I'll be reading some discussions tonight as the internet allows.

It got pretty rough here. I haven’t been out, but can see from windows we lost some branches. It’s still thundering here too. The lights blinked a good bit , but never stayed off.

Yeah it was another bad and long stretch of storms. Our lights didn't flicker this time. Yay! Now we get to clean up the yards again. Ha!

Ar the baby chicks so loud? Poor babies, I am sure they will be fine where you moved them. I moved my first tomato plants in the ground this afternoon.

They are not THAT loud. He was just being annoying!! They should do fine outside. The temps at night are in 60's and 70's here now and they are feathered. I'll get another picture of them to post soon.

@kareng This is exactly what I thought, often men are like that, they get annoyed and they exaggerate things. I will be happy to see a new picture of your chicks.

@kareng other than two Labs shaking we were all ok. It wasn't a huge 3 or 4-hour thunderstorm. About 45 minutes and then gone!

@DocAndersen That was definitely in your favor. I had cousins in Texas that practically spent the night in the bathroom with their dogs also.

Nothing like severe weather..... Glad you're okay through all of this madness. It's been a rough couple of days. I was listening to tornado coverage all the way home, and even had to pull off the road because I was close to a tornado warning in Charlotte, NC!

Yes, too much bad weather is happening these days. That happened to us in GA last year! Very scary! Thank goodness you are okay!

I hope all went well with the tornado watch. I saw the news yesterday about a tornado that slammed through the south and did a lot of damage.

I have those. They think when they here voices they should communicate or if light is on. LOL. They are outside now so they can be as loud as they want!

Stay safe and thanks for the update. We were away last week, several days in Chicago, so I feel as though I missed a lot. Have a wonderful time tomorrow.

The last leg of the storm went south of us. Yay! Chicks did fine. I kept a watch over them. They didn't even get wet.
