I really want to post something today, something good. I can't. I've been awake for more than a day, and I'm tired to the bone. Yesterday started out nicely, but around three in the afternoon our luck well and truly ran out.
A swarm of zombies hit a farm in force, more than a hundred of them. It's lucky that it was the farm closest to the compound, which let us get there quickly. We fielded about fifty fighters against the zombies, and mowed them down in less than ten minutes. In the time it took us to get there and wipe them out, they killed a dozen sheep, seven pigs, and trampled all over an acre of seedling plants the farmers just finished transplanting in their dash toward the animal pens.
It's a huge mess. If anyone out there is reading this and is heading our way, bring some of your own food with you. Until we can stabilize the farms, we're going to have to do a lot more hunting.
That's the current situation. I can't even think straight at this point. I'm going to go to bed and sleep until someone wakes me up. Maybe this will turn out to have been a bad dream. It'd be nice, but I doubt it.
