A late afternoon thunder boomer surprised us rolling over the mountains and delaying dinner, but Kiska still found time for a post storm patrol.
We had a beautiful, sunny day yesterday, but a late afternoon surprise rolled over the mountain ridges just as Hu-Dad was preparing our dinner. We had to declare a meal delay and waited for the thunder to roll away before dinner was finally served.
Don’t worry about any critters invading Sibe Quentin, though, because Miss Kiska still found time to patrol the border and declare everything safe before bedtime.

What Weather When?
March 26, 2023
How do you dress for a day in the Western North Carolina Mountains? Just answer what weather when? Good luck with that.
Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,700 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
Undercarriage Dog Wash
Q-tip loves hanging out in the yard, particularly on a rainy, muddy day like Sunday—even if it does mean he needs an undercarriage dog wash.
That is a good shot of the two of them; Kiska focused on the yard and Qannik on the camera.
I’ve never seen a husky with such long fur before seeing your Kiska. Have you seen others? Or is she your first?
First and probably only. That long coat is a nightmare to maintain, prone to matting and tangles and picking up every twig, burr, and leaf on a trail.
The long coat is called a “wooly” in the Siberian Husky world. Technically, it is a fault in the breed caused by a recessive gene.
The worst part about the coat for the breed is that it is far less effective in snow and ice than a normal Siberian Husky coat. Water can get under the guard hairs and freeze. She suffers from those obnoxious ice balls forming on her coat.
So it is one of those pretty to look at, but no fun to have things.
Now that’s dedication from the senior security team. A security chief’s work is never done. Well done Miss Kiska and deputy Qannik!
Good job Miss Kiska of monitoring the border patrol!!! You are awesome!
Love that photograph of Kiska & Qannik!!
