Time To Build An Ark

We have had over 4 inches (10 centimeters) of rain since Friday. With several more days of rain predicted, the weather prognosticators have suggested we will not see sunshine before Saturday. That has us suggesting to Hu-Dad that it might be time to build an ark.

above ground napping - time to build an ark

Kiska has staked claim to above ground napping.

Yesterday morning, we were all eager to get outside until the Hu-Dad opened the door. Hearing the rain, we all just turned around and went back to bed. We tried to stay there until, well, we just could not wait any longer and finally went outside.

Why does she get the airy spot for sleep?

On the plus side, when we come inside, we love to give the Hu-Dad lots of loving and affection so he can share in the joys of so much rain.

Time to come inside, Hu-Dad. Ready for a hug?
