The Barn Fire Today

I hesitated to put the last two pictures up, but I don't think you can see the faces of the Amish men clearly enough to be a problem.
I wanted to show the horses working alongside the loud fire equipment.
John's barn burnt to the ground this morning. It was started by the power source over heating. Hay was in the top, so it went fast.
The girls are making a huge beef stew to take later. There will be crowds helping for the next couple days, full time.
Danny's working there for today, and the girls and I will be visiting John's daughter and her little children, including brand new baby boy. It's very hard for this industrious lady to sit at home, alone with the littles.
We'll be trying to sneak some school and pony training in between trips to the fire.
Oh, and if the carnage in our yard and the loss of the dairy barn weren't enough excitement, a car overturned in a ditch nearby, and the Amish extricated the driver. Whew, Charlotte County is hoppin' today!


  1. Just found your blog; will have to browse it later when I have more time. Sounds like a very eventful day; I hope no one was hurt?!

    Have a wonderful day!

    In Christ,

  2. Wow! That is an exciting day. We've got nothing on our end. I hope they get the new barn up quickly.
