Well compared to others, the farm got off pretty luck in the winds over the past 24 hours, I have seen photos of tree`s down on facebook, I have read the reports of the damage on CBC and I have listened to the reports of thousands without power in our local area.
We appear to have gotten off with a little rabbit adventure and two roofs ripped right off our hutches..
I take the blame on this one, in truth the hutches lids could have used new hardware this summer, its on the hit list but you see in the spring, after the thaw, we move the rabbit hutches from their winter area to their summer digs..
It takes two people to carry a hutch and then get moved to under one of our big old tree`s, soft dappled shade and I tend to face them so they will get the warm summer winds, but normally in the fall, they get moved back to the winter digs..
The winter spot is on the backside of the little barn, it gives them the most winter sun but blocks the wind on two sides and it faces a direction that rarely see`s wind or weather come in facing it, plus it sits half under a overhang for even more added protection as the indoor parts of the hutch is the closest part to the wall.
but between me being broken, gone to alberta and sick, we have not got them moved, so this morning, the roof-lids where off and down on the ground and few of the kit rabbits had made the jump, most had the sense to stay in the nice safe with their mother.
So we will need to do a bit of a roundup and possible fish net or live trap being brought out to give a helping hand.
otherwise, with this warm wind, I have aired the house out, and have a lovely ham with winter turnip, cabbage and onion roasting off in the oven today.
It seems like a proper meal for a late fall day… What is one of your favorite fall meals, and did you get nailed with the winds..
