This afternoon as Mark and I were working on the chicken coop, big black clouds were gathering in the northwestern sky. The wind began to rock the coop. We had brittle fiberglass roofing on one side and we were beginning to lay corrugated metal on the other. Then it began to rain. We finally went to our RV and from there we could see the rain coming in sideways. I felt like singing, “Oh say can you see if our roof is still there?”
We stayed inside till time to feed the animals for the evening. The wind had died down and it was not raining quite so hard. After I fed the baby chicks and the ducklings I went to feed the two little banties that are disabled. One of them has problems with its feet and the other is blind in one eye, so they are kept in a separate pen in the front yard. While I was there I picked up Sunshine and she crawled up my arm and sheltered under the hood of my jacket. I walked with her to the chicken coop to see how the roof was holding up. The fiberglass side has a few leaks, but other than that the roof was still intact and the coop was still standing.
Mark saw me walking around with Sunshine inside my hood so he went back to the RV and got our camera. Here are several of the pictures he took:
