Setbacks - Hay Fire

I have made promises to share setbacks, disappointments and sadness, for people to understand that everyone has challenges in life.  I am much too authentic, to share our story in a way to make others believe it is all sunshine and rainbows.  The past week has been a little challenging and disappointing as feed that is both difficult to find and valuable caught fire at the feedyard.

The fire continued for several days and burned . . .

and burned.

Thank you to the Lexington Volunteer Fire Department for your help.

We have been left with a mess of water, wet feed and a lot of paperwork. The good news is we still have plenty of feed for cattle through the summer.

It was stressful to get a third hand report through Jake about these fires.  I think it may have been less painful to be there to watch it.

After a short cry, a talk with Gail Martin, a talk with the insurance agent, a longer cry, a sleepless night and then a trip to Mass, things are going to be alright.
