2011 Was a Tough Year

Posted By on December 26, 2011

We had a big flood in Feb. and several more in March and April.  The Mill Pond was filled with trees and high winds had knocked down 7 trees in the Tail Race.  Then a tornado hit the mill in May.  We had a lot of water damage in the mill because part of the roof was gone and it kept raining.  With good insurance and lots of volunteer help we managed to get it all back together and in better than ever shape.  The mill was robbed 4 times during the year.  We finally got a good view of the (suspect) with our security cameras and he was caught and put in jail.  We had a beautiful Spring.  But, it only lasted a few days.  Then it started raining and didn’t stop until the drought started.  During the rebuilding of the mill we had back to back days of 110 to 115 heat (with heat index added).  Gas was high and the economy was low ……… However, we had a very good fall and the best ever Covered Bridge Festival.  So, we are planning for 2012 and hoping for a good year.

    Thanks for sharing this great content.

  2. Trees that are lush and thick with foliage may appear to be “perfect”, but that same thick foliage can block sunlight from reaching any grass, shrubs or other plants that might be trying to grow under or near the tree.

  3. It was tough, yes, but 2020 is exponentially tougher than what 2011 was, right?

    When hit by a flood then a tornado, it is really tough but I’m glad that you were able to get back on your feet again.

  5. This is fantastic can’t wait to hear the next entry.

  6. I wonder if these webinars are still up till now since it is pandemic, I am hoping they would also do more of it. I am a mother of two and right now I would like to enroll myself in such educational activity. That way I can be able to also do homeschooling to my offsprings.
