Stormy Weather


The old song applies to Oklahoma today! Last night at 3 a.m. a huge thunderstorm moved through. We have one of those weather alert radios which wakes us up in bad weather, so we got up to check out the storm. Our dog, a rat terrier, is terrified of thunder so he was a nuisance and a total wreck. The vet gave us some anxiety tablets for him, but they don't seem to have much effect. When Mugsy is awake and scared, everyone is awake.

To add to the fun and excitement, our telephone rang, not once but several times. With lightning crashing and sizzling the lines, I wasn't too sure about answering. When we did, we were dismayed to find it was a child, calling from Ukraine, that we had hosted one Christmas. It was 11 a.m. in Ukraine. This was the first time ever she'd called, so I was very disappointed that the lightning cut us off.

Anyway, in all this fun, we received 5 inches of rain! We're going to appreciate that much better in August when the dry heat attacks.
How's the weather in your neighborhood????

Hi Linda,

Came across your lovely site when I clicked-in to see who else noted "The Great Southwest" as their corner of the world.

Your sweet dog scared at the sound of rumbling thunder, who can blame him/her? I have a Boxer, Sunni Marie, a maniac, comforting and a joy to be around, a classic exuberant Boxer.

Big props and respect to you regarding your work, time, efforts with orphans. What a blessing, what a calling.

God Bless and keep you safe, happy and healthy.

Hi Brunodelaroza,

Thanks for stopping in. Being a dog lover, I totally agree about the comfort and joy a canine companion can be. Boxers are great dogs. I grew up around one, a brindle named Lucky, that was a great dog.

Good to have you drop in. Take care and God bless.
