Hiding From Thunderstorms In The Big Bed

In our never ending cycle of rain, Frankie has discovered that the big bed – aka, the human bed – makes a great hiding spot from thunderstorms.

Why is the sky booming again?

Why is the sky booming again?

Based on current predictions, we should get a break from all of this rain this coming Saturday. Yep, Saturday. The rain is predicted to get harder over the next several days as Alberto passes to our west and dumps tons of water on our mountains. We are all tired of the rain, but no one as much as Frankie.

Yesterday afternoon, during a somewhat mild thunderstorm, Hu-Dad went looking for Frankie and discovered him in the human bed. He had unmade the bed, fluffed the blankets, and built himself a thunder-proof nest.

I will be right here until Saturday.

Movie Memory Monday

Rain is not the only evil thing that has invaded Chez Herd. Do you remember the Evil Squeaky Pig? Enjoy this week’s Movie Monday when your volume turned up. Ok, maybe not if you don’t want your co-workers to know what you are doing.

    Everybody(huskies) is hanging out in the house or covered deck thanks to Alberto. If I’m scooping poop in the yard then its OK to come out in the backyard when its raining! And this to will pass! Stay dry the best you can in Maggie Valley this coming week!
