Right now, as I’m writing this, a really strong squall in blowing through. The wagon is rocking so hard, it’s hard to hit the right keys. I’m in a roadside camp, so I had Bob tied to the wagon and Doc and Bill in the electric corral. I just went outside to pull tie them to the wagon, as I was afraid I was going to lose the fence in the wind. Also they have a little more protection in the lee of the wagon.
This is the second batch of nasty weather we’ve seen today. Shortly after pulling in to Monte Vista, a squall blew through with some 1/4 inch hail. That wasn’t too bad, so we kept trucking down the road. However, five minutes later another hailstorm sprung up - this one with 3/4 inch hail. I quickly turned into the drive for a business, so I could put there butts to the wind. Horses are extremely tolerant of bad weather as long as they are facing away from it. Fifteen minutes later, the 60 degree weather had almost completely melted the inch of hail stones.
The output from my solar panels doesn’t seem to be effected by the hail; however, I don’t have anything to climb up there and physically check them out.
