Rain fell from the sky throughout yesterday. Considering our severe drought conditions and all of the wildfires, we were quite thankful for the rain. However, the storms also trapped a group of dogs inside the house while Hu-Dad was trying to work in his study. One certain member of The Herd was caught racing around and creating too much havoc, so Hu-Dad insisted he stay in the study for a while.

Typhoon reluctantly agreed, but then discovered that his timing could not be better.

Is that popcorn you are snacking on?

An hour before sunrise. Darkness cloaked my path. Fear bubbled up inside me. A whiff of wildlife alerted me to a heinous stalker in the woods.
