State of the Farm

Really escaped with nominal damage [from Hurricane Harvey]. No creatures lost at all. In fact, the pigs seemed to have enjoyed all of the mud and water coming at them. Our concern was the possible over-topping of our dam (Pig Lane) as happened in the Memorial Day flood. So I had opened the drain pipe valve two days earlier and drew down about three feet of water. Got back to Houston just as the rain began. The extra three feet of water holding capacity made the difference. Water got high but never to the dam top. Every once in a while you get something right.
