The Sanctuary made it through the storms and we hope you did, too!
The last few days and night here in Boyd, TX have been full of tornado watches, tornado warnings, and big storms but we made it! Last night, we had a tornado warning, with one headed toward Boyd from just west of us. Most of the animals were snug and dry in their houses and calm as could be but as usual, there were a few who were out and about! They love water too much to hate the rain. It's just a little different than sitting in their waters or playing in their pools!
A few of the staff members were a little less collected than the cats and bears! Being in "tornado alley" is new for most of our interns and can certainly cause a big of a scare when the prospect of such a big storm is headed our way. The tornado did miss us, thank goodness, and we hope that everyone who was affected by these storms is safe now!
The next step for us is clean up! With some branches down, waters full of leaves and rain water, and some muddy washouts, we're all set for a busy few days!
We hope to see you all out at the Sanctuary now that the weather is clearing up!
Tours every day at 11 AM and Saturdays also at 3 PM!
See you soon!
