Anyone use a good weather app with local radar views? I had Accuweather and for us, the radar was perfect. Most often, if the heavier lines of storms are in a line from LA crossing the MS River by at least the middle section of MS, it will track right over our mountain to us. Most of the severe storms get sort of 'tripped' by the mountain -- a very good thing for us -- and finger out on this side instead of staying concentrated.
Either way, I don't have anything but Weather Channel now and I don't like their radar at all :o( I need something else. Any ideas?
Not much here today, we'll be sort of 'loafing' as they say. I'm working on the burpies and more sun bonnets, then I need to get at least 1 pinafore for each of the younger girls done and David pulled out that Spiderman remnant again and asked why it wasn't sewn into his boxers. Nice he reminded me, but that just spurred Jacob to pull out his tan camo and ask the same thing. Guess *I* won't be doing much loafing afterall.
We opened up a large section of timber the past several days and finally finished the fencing on the last bit. The goats are happy-go-lucky now. Of course, that timber was nice enough to share with us...bath time last night was more like a scavenger hunt. Between all the youngers and Matthew, we pulled 8 seed ticks. Ugh. I hate those things. Talk about annoying! They are SO SMALL! I still just don't feel convinced we got them all from their hair. Abigail and Jacob have such dark hair, and in Abbey's case, it's long and thick! Everyone else is a breeze really, especially KatiAnne and David...that wispy mass of sun-bleached golden hair and sun-tanned scalp makes even those seed ticks stand out like beacons :o)
Hopefully as the goats feast on the brush and starts in that section we'll see less and less of those little annoyances. They have been so heavy this year. We started seeing them in February! I had really hoped with the longer span of good 'cold for Mississippi' weather we'd have seen less :o(
I need to hit the garden section that's tilled. Yesterday our dear friends at the feed store sent us home with 50# of seed potatoes and a pack of tomato plants! Gotta get planting and praying they aren't a waste here again this year!
