Tropical Storm Hermine came through Flying Hat Ranch yesterday, dumping four inches of precious rainfall. The clouds were low to the ground. The mussel shells we place in the road going to the barn floated down the road with eroded soil, giving the appearance of beach front property instead the semi-arid West.
Hermine blew my hat off and knocked out our high-speed internet connection. I came into Fort Worth today in order to work on my online classes. As we left the ranch, the eye of Hermine passed over Interstate 20 and the sun shined and blue sky appeared. But within a matter of minutes the eye of the storm passed and we were in gentle rain again.
When I fed the horses this morning, Star and Fanny ran around the corral in excitement, kicking and prancing, enjoying the cooler temperatures and wet weather. I had to empty their feed bins of water. Lilly, who is by herself in the Broke Tree Corral, loves the cooler weather, too. The corrals are side-by-side so that they all can be together, young and old alike.
