Monday was a Bear
What a Monday. We had a thunder storm that blew every thing that wasn't nailed down half way across the county. We lost power at noon. By milking time we still didn't have any. The power company said it would be back up by 8 pm. We couldn't find a generator, so we waited. The cows got milked at 2 am this morning. Long night, waiting and waiting. The cows were upset and uncomfortable, and their herdsman could do nothing to help them. I felt awful about the whole thing. The hoof trimmer is coming this morning at 11:00. This on top of everything else. I'm tired and hot and hungry. I'm headed back to the barn to try to get things back on schedule.
I can get by without power at the house, lived without before... kinda like it. The tough part is the milking herd. We need a good generator but the ones big enouph to run my milking system cost an arm and a leg, so I must wait until I can afford one. Well, off I go. I'll check in latter.
