Feather's litter (half of whom have eyes open today) were piled out in the open part of the cage. I think it was too warm in the nest box since I added a bunch of hay for Feather yesterday. So I cleaned it out and put the babies back in.
I managed to get some more plants transplanted from nursery containers to buckets. Three really sad looking Banana Supreme peppers, and the last two Satin Beauty eggplants went into buckets.
I managed to wrap up that project just as the big storm was rolling in. Admittedly it wasn't nearly as big and bad as the warnings had me worried about. We were warned about quarter-sized hail and wind gusts up to 65 miles an hour. We didn't see any hail, and while it did get windy briefly, it was nothing to be terribly worried about. Just rain. Once the storm passed us the weather warning increased to half-dollar sized hail and 70 mph wind gusts for the cities next to be caught in the storm. Brainerd Bubble* again I suppose. I think we will miss that when we move. It will be interesting to go back to the new house after this storm (which also went over that property) to see if there's any damage.
It did drop the temperature from 92 to 68 in less than an hour.
My apologies to fellow arachnophobes - I found a big spider while I was tarping up the hutches in anticipation of the approaching rainstorm. I believe it's a cat head spider. We've had them around the house before. As long as they're not near me or indoors, I leave them alone. They're great at taking down the insect population. That said, I'm an arachnophobe, so I left this one be after snapping a quick photo. I'm sure the poor thing has been knocked out of the area by all the rain, but hopefully he (or she) comes back and eats some flies and mosquitoes for us. Warning - Spider photo below!!
