TBN Ranch in Ruins from Massive Storm

This is our farm after a micro burst hit our farm on Saturday night. As you can see, TBN Ranch will never be the same, but at least there were no injuries.  These are the first few pictures, I’ll write more about this fiasco when I can.

  1. I’m so glad no one was injured. We are used to such storms here in Oklahoma, and we understand how much work it is to restore and repair everything… and no, it never is the same after!

  2. Oh my goodness! I’m so sorry! Thankful to hear that there were no injuries though.

  3. So sad Amy. Glad no one was injured. Our heart goes out for you and yours and our prayers for strength and hope as you rebuild.

    1. Thank you. It sure would be easier to get through this if the temps weren’t WAY over 100 degrees. I found out what it’s like to have no air conditioning… yikes!

    1. All the animals and chickens are fine. I found the birds, and they were not hurt at all… just freaked out. Not sure what to do with them while the barn is being built, but for now, just one day at a time. Can you believe after all the work I’ve done building my new chicken enclosures they are all gone after only a week of moving the hens in? OMG!

      1. I can’t believe it…all that work you did… I’m so sorry. Wish I lived next door and could give you a helping hand… but what a blessing that your animals are fine. We’ve had tornadoes near by us that have really hurt horses with all the torn metal flying in the air. It’s so devastating.

      2. Yeah, something like that would have been so much worse. I’m ready to just let it all go and move forward. So we build another barn and set up the chickens again, oh well.

    1. That’s my second one, the last one was nearly twenty five years ago. That one destroyed everything too. I’m pretty sure I’ve had my share, can’t imagine I’d get hit a third time!

      1. Here in Southern Arizona, they are painfully common. I have had the kids giant sliding board and chicken tractors built of heavy pallets tossed about like a tornado. I also learned the painful way not to be lazy about affixing roof panels when one nailed a 4’x4′ section of plywood into the end of the house like a ninja star.

        It’s the price we pay for Summer in Winter.

      2. Yeah, I know all about building anything that isn’t sunk two feet in concrete! Funny, I have a few chicken coops that are pretty much pieced together shelters… they are still standing! lol My barn took the biggest hit, and that was built right. Go figure! “It’s the price we pay for Summer in Winter.” Well said!
