The reality is that we knew the snow was getting deep on the barn but it had gone past where it was safe for Poppie to shovel the snow off. The roof had to small an incline and it was in danger of caving in but it was not worth getting hurt to try to ammend it. Poppie said he thinks what took it out was that when he had just feed the animals and was feeding Mema her grain, Jewels was upset and trying to steal her grain so was ramming the center support beams with her horns. Poppie said it was sort of rattling the barn but he never thought the vibrations would cause the whole barn to come down. He had only been in the house a short wile when the avalanche occurred. Thankfully this was one not human caused and praise the Lord all the animals are safe. Well we will be rebuilding a smaller barn this spring with a higher pitched roof, something Poppie has really wanted to do for sometime but if you have something to use the need for a new one doesn't always seem that high on the list of things to do. Now it is top of the list, we will end up with a better barn and that in the end will also be a blessing.
Yesterday there were 6 avalanches on the interstate on the north end of our county, both lanes of the interstate are still closed no one was hurt. One man died from an avalanche that came down on his home last Friday, in Zootown, trapping him, his wife and an 8 year old boy. I am sorry for his families loss, we were so much more blessed we lost nothing but a barn that needed rebuilt anywat. The Lord was so good to us here.
I pray the Lord is good in your life and you know the blessings that he is to you in your life. I hope that your day is blessed and you know that your salvation is settled in the Lord Jesus, amen.... tomorrow.
