So now the model flipflop watching to see if we get cold in a little over a week.
nothing big. Typical "all bark, no bite". Everything is sliding east this year.

Thank you all. I was able to clear most of the tree debris and hook the horse up to the tractor and get him to the driveway.

Waller Equine is supposedly picking him up today.

I’m not going to touch the barn yet until insurance arrives tomorrow .
I am so sorry for your loss and this terrible news! Your family will be in our prayers!

We had a tragedy at the house. We were under the tornado warned cell in Magnolia and our barn was destroyed and my boys new horse (Christmas present) was killed in the storm.

150 yards to the SW and our house would have taken the brunt of that wind.

Hard coming back in and telling your 7 and 4 year old their horse is dead 2 weeks after our 15 year old dog passed.
Just heartbreaking MontgomeryCoWx :cry: Wishing for comfort & peace for your & yours - hugs to those kiddos

So sorry to hear. Those storms packed a punch. My best wishes.

updated LSRs - anyone with damage should report it so it's documented for this event

This winter the models have only been a tease, nothing more. I can't recall the last time they were so wrong with model runs outside of 5 days for the entire winter season. I dont see anything else happening for cold weather this year. Hopefully next year will be better.
