We had the hottest day at the house in three years which led to an event that we can only describe as the massive wading pool failure.
If you haven’t figured it out already, Hu-Dad is geeky about lots of things and weather is one of them. We have our own weather station at Sibe Quentin that sends data out to all sorts of interested folks including the National Weather Service (EW1053 for the weather geeky folks out there). So when we say that we recorded the highest temperature we have seen since 2013 – we mean actually at the house. Of course, we don’t get much sympathy when we say that high was 80.1ºF / 26.7ºC, but we honestly have not seen 80º weather in three years. Whew!
A reader commented yesterday about wading pools and Hu-Dad decided we needed one. Shortly after noon, this blue thing appeared in Sibe Quentin and was filled with water. Where else would a bunch of hot huskies want to be?
As it turns out, Cheoah – fittingly, the Cherokee word for Otter – was the only one of us who had any interest in getting wet. And she briefly waded through it twice and then ignored it for the rest of the day. The rest of us had the exact same reaction as Typhoon.
Once again, we have foiled a clever Hu-Dad plan.
