Whoa! ! ! !
This isn't a gigantic tornado but it is a storm sitting over Cody. Sara took this on her cellphone when in Powell. In a matter of a half hour the rain stopped and now the sun is out so we're steaming. And the weeds are growing taller and stronger as I watch them.
The bad news is that I had five bags of cavy food in the back of my truck so they were a bit damp. Luckily only a couple handfuls of feed were slightly soggy, the rest I poured into many buckets to get them out of the paper bags.
Born in Downers Grove, IL, I moved to Cody in 1981 after living in Boulder, CO for many years. As I enjoyed the outdoors and spent many weeks up in Wyoming going on horsepacking trips with friends, I decided to move here. I started Ironside Bird Rescue in 1987 after finding an orphaned Starling baby that had fallen out of its nest near my house. One thing led to another and after all these years the facility now has many different sized mews and flight barns for the exercise of raptors so they will be strong enough for release. I live in a 130+ year old log cabin with a corgi mix dog, her mother, a purebread corgi, a couple cats and many birds in a free flight aviary attached to the house. I'm now retired from a "real job". Along with rehabbing birds, I spend a lot of hours volunteering at our local Buffalo Bill Historical Center in the graphics department.
