My wife calls them "bovine sleeping bags" and as I was waiting for this storm to initiate I decided to get a couple of pics which included these rolls of hay.

    Thanks!

    This storm actually produced very little rain, but sometimes copious amounts of hail…

    Well seen Mr Matt. The sky seems to add an element of chaos to the order of the cylindrical bales.
