|Before - Fall Colors Above Driveway Late October|
Today we were busy hauling lambs in what was perfect weather for that chore. Temps in the high 60's and really high winds as a front was moving in. Listening to the radio as we returned, we heard about regional power outages and accidents due to trees & branches falling. We dodged broken limbs and debris on the road periodically the whole way home. Our neighbor was out picking up branches in her yard as we went by.
As we turned down the lower driveway, I joked "Well, the outhouse is still upright!" Ha, ha, ha. Then I said "WHOA - look at that!!!". Mr. Wild Rose Farm said, "Look at what ...?".

|Clearing The Driveway|
As I post this blog, the corner of the house next to me creaks with the wind. The farmhouse is pinned and pegged construction - the corners are tree trunks two stories high with a 90 degree angle cut out of them to form the inside corner. Interesting, huh?
