Fall arrives

All is well on the ranch.

The weather is beginning to cool. Still dry, but lots of grass. Not seeing as many deer, but there are acorns everywhere no so they have plenty to eat. It will be time to do more clearing soon.

We have a Road!

The county has finished our county road. We now have a 'paved' road all the way from our gate to town. Hopefully this will help on the wear and tear of our automobiles. Of course it may bring more flatlanders (tourists) as well, but the road doesn't really go anywhere and the paving stops not far beyond my last gate so perhaps not. The road is 100% better than what we had before. Good.

Now speaking of wear & tear on autos, a deer ran into the Trailblazer on Thursday night. Yes it ran into a stopped car at the Crossroads. $2100 damage. Not Good.

We had some showers this week with some rain and today some wind and rain from hurricane Ike. Probably 1.5" for the week. Everything is green again. There is plenty of grass for the goats.

A little Rain

We've been gone for a week. We thought we would get some rain from hurricane Gustav, but nada, everything was dried out. We watered everything on Sunday. Then today we get rain, almost .65 inches. Very welcome and needed.

I'm sure the deer and birds are glad we are back as all the feeders are empty. We'll have everything back to normal soon.

What a great surprise to see the road paved when we turned onto CR 4195. They are about half way so it is coming!!
