from outer space

We don't get hail here very often. When it fell here the other day we were here, and at first wondered what the odd sound xould be. As the pace picked up and we stepped outside onto the back porch it was falling like rain. Homer says it fall all the way from outer space, quite an impressive distance to travel to arrive at Sunnyside Farm. After we oohed and awwed over it the thought occurred that there might be damage, and damage there is.

Every tarp on every chicken pen has a bunch of small holes over the surface. That hail was sharp! Something for Homer to do over the winter: find tarps on closeout and replace..or use duct tape and repair. In early spring the top must be intact, as cold rains have bad effects on little chicks.
