Tropical Storm Fay

For those of you who missed it, Tropical Storm Fay just would not leave. It passed over our house twice (once going West, then going East) and dumped tons of rain. Next door to our house is a cow pasture. These cows were apparently killed sometime during the rain, but I don't know what killed them. The rainwaters were not so high they would have drowned. I guess maybe lightning struck a pool of water they were standing in. That is all I can think of.
This carp may not look like much, but it is one of 3 carp that have been living in our pond for the last 15 years or so. Tropical Storm Fay ended this carp's tenure in the pond. We don't know if the other two survived or if they were washed over the dam and down stream.
