Just calm before storm. At 5:00pm the lightning knock the power out for 18 hours. Lightning hit a bale of hay in our field and it caught fire.

Bale still burning Sunday morning

Unfortunately I'll have to take Joel's word for that being a great pace, but frankly I find it amazing.

Congratulations, Alex!

jypsy, don't tell me that's a lightening strike! That's crop circle! Evidence that a spaceship landed there during the storm! Don't they teach you these things in Canada?? :-)
