A day on the farm... June 15, 2010

Skyler (alias Farm Boy) and Brian moved the Buckeye chicks to rolling chicken tractors yesterday so today the chores where a bit different with more waterers to carry.
We ran another line of cross fencing in the south pasture during the afternoon. It was miserably hot and humid. Two minutes outside and your clothes were dripping wet. We came in for big glasses of ice tea and cooled off in the A/C. Then right on schedule at 6:20 pm the evening thunder storm grumbled in with rain by the bucket and a light show to rival the 4th of July.  By 8:00 it had pretty much gone by so we went out in the lingering rain and did our evening chores. I don't think I was dry 10 minutes all day.
When we got back in I started pizza dough for homemade pizza. I glanced out the west window and there was a rainbow above the greenhouse and the light from the setting sun was just amazing. We stopped everything, ran for the camera and then spent some time on the porch swing just marveling at the wonder of what a little sunlight and water can create. It was a good day.
