Enduring Rainy Days and Storms

Nearly two inches of rain fell yesterday in a steady downpour, so Hu-Dad thought he would share some photographs of us enduring rainy days and storms.

A soggy, soggy day.

A soggy, soggy day.

The rain started falling Sunday evening and fell steadily throughout Monday totaling nearly two inches. Steady winds kept the fog at bay, and the temperatures remained quite cool for August (barely 60ºF / 15ºC).

Even the Boom Boom wasn't boom booming.

All we could do was lay around the house and sigh heavily at the injustice of it all. Well, that and complain to Hu-Dad about the weather, something he claims to have no control over.

Not even rabbits outside to watch.

Of all of the drama in the house over the bad weather, the award must go to Cheoah for best expression of disgust at the weather.

Though Hu-Dad points out she is on the couch in good weather, too.

    Mom sez: That look of disgust on Cheoah’s face is a real “prize winner”. It really does SAY IT ALL!

    Rain is not a friend to my fluffy bottoms. They can’t bound around the yard, jumping like Bunnies. And the wet Sibe hair….oh the grossness! Like globs of hairy glue, it sticks to the doormat, never budging. Howls fill the house, as the restless crew begs the sun to reappear. Bedtime brings feisty furballs, ready to play. We’ll take snow any day. Rain rain go away…

    In the Rocky Mountains too. All that rain and negative ions made everyone sleepy.

    I feel your pain sweet Sibes…. stormy days sure do put a monkey wrench in our daily plans!!!

    I think the whole country is experiencing the heavy downpours at some point or another. I’m sorry you folks had to take a turn. 🙁 It’s 52 degrees as I type this, barely past 4am, but I must confess… I like it! *lol* Summer is not a friend of mine. I tolerate her visits every year but am waiting at the door, ready to hand her the suitcase, when she’s getting ready to leave. I breathe a sigh of relief when she’s gone. 🙂 May sunshine be in your neck of the woods soon. Blessings~ Andrea

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
