Hurricane aftermath...

 Well Hurricane "Irene" came and went with much fury and damage to Connecticut. Many people lost everything, suffered heavy damage and came together as a community and helped each other out. We lost our tree "Coon Hollow". We watched many a raccoon raise her babies in it and my time as a coon rehabber taught me so much about their natural ways. This tree is who we named the farm after...(sigh)...



We had so many branches down, kindling and firewood everywhere! We have much cleaning up ahead of us...
Leaves littered our property everywhere. The alpacas and sheep came out towards the end of the storm and enjoyed the humid warm rain and munched on some tasty leaves...
Our neighbors lost a big old maple that came down. It was old and dying and landed perfectly in their yard and didn't touch a thing! Here is Tim helping our neighbor Tom cut the tree up. Thankfully for our neighbor's who ran a generator and kept our fridge going and cold! We suffered through 6 long days without power. Sitting every evening with a Coleman camp lantern and feeding baby squirrels. Towards the end it was getting tough to get water to the animals, but we got threw it and it is behind us now as an old memory!
