And that was an understatement. Ok, so at the moment it is not a heat wave and the temp is pretty awesome. We have spent the previous past two weeks with high 90’s and with our humidity here, bumping things into the hundreds. The past few days just really put it up there. Whew…. And to make it worse, no rain in ages here, til Wed and I am not really sure that counts as rain as we got nailed with a storm that was something fierce and boom….power, what power? It took five days for us to see power again and the temps were at almost a hundred and add in some humidity, arghh. I dont mind roughing it and a lot does not bother me and we do not have air conditioning and with a well, no water. But the heat makes it rough and no way to get any air moving…unless I want to run around a lot, lol.
But the horses were the issue, luckily our neighbors were wired to the hilt with generators and we could mug them for some and kept the horses watered. Ya know, one would think the big, black, horses would hang out in the shed with the heat and sun…not! Every time you looked they were out eating grass or hanging somewhere else, dang. Though only thing I am sure they wanted and I could not really provide is being hosed. I got to a bit but not as often as I hoped. All of the Friesians seem to be water horses, they love to play in the water and will stand there forever while you hose them.
I am so glad the power is back on, though bummer our fridge is now completely empty. It has been a really long time since we have had this kind of outage, not since the first few years we have been here. ok, now back to catching up what got put behind after all this, the mooses will be so glad to go back to getting hosed!
