Wind Event

Major wind event continues at noon today originating from a cut off low off the coast of Southern California, a pre-monsoonal surge of subtropical moisture bringing lightning and thunderstorms to the Southern Sierra and Central Valley into tomorrow. Little moisture. A.M. wind blew the top of a sycamore across our electrical service line to our pump at the corrals. We’ll have to haul water to our cattle.

Meanwhile we have cows and calves gathered in Greasy awaiting weaning planned for today if a tree hasn’t fallen across a fence up there. We’ll have to take some hay and check the damage tomorrow. We’re not done with the wind gusts.

    Yes, it certainly a wild and crazy day, following a overhead thunder and lightening earlier. The tree trimmers and chain sawers will be kept busy. We, too, have some limbs down – no loss of power tho.


  2. That’s a sad sight, John, and a lot of extra work for you. Here in the Phoenix area we’re in our monsoon season but haven’t see much rain yet. Thankfully we also haven’t seen the enormous dust storms that can also happen. Praying for rain here and for rain without the high winds in both places!
