Redhead Rainy Rant

Our resident Cheesewhiz was quite displeased with our dreary Monday weather, so prepare yourself for a redhead rainy rant.

Why this weather?

Why this weather?

A cool rain on a summer day is refreshing.

A fresh winter snow is gorgeous.

And driving rain on a day when the temperature hovers just above freezing is…miserable.

Do something, Hu-Dad.

Do something, Hu-Dad.

Sadly, that was exactly our weather yesterday. We had over an inch and a half of rain while temperatures hovered in the mid 30’s all day. Another inch or more of rain was expected overnight. Overall, we can only say…boring.

Wake me when the weather is better.

Movie Memory Monday (on Tuesday)

Yes, we know. It’s Tuesday. Once again, our Hu-Dad forgot to post our Movie Memory on Monday. We can’t even come up with an alliteration that works for Tuesday (go ahead – try). In the meantime, here is a flashback to our Miss Cheoah getting her hair done – Cheesewhiz Coiffure. Enjoy.

    Wish we had your cold rain. We have wildfires out of control.

    Cold, wet rain = miserable collies too! Hope tomorrow is a better day!

    Almost cold enough for snow Cheezewhiz. It’s coming…..

    Poor Cheoah! We had a miserable, rainy Monday in Nashville too, although it was warmer here. I hope today is a better day for you, beautiful girl.

    Cheoah, it sounds like a great day to lounge on a nice comfy couch in front of a warm cozy fire ❤️

  7. Terry (+Rory) on November 13, 2018 at 7:47 am

    Cold rain here too!
    … We’re tired of all the rain too☔ and wishing we could send it to California so the fires would be stopped!
    What about the “snow machines” on the mountains? Does the rain just wash it all away?

      The rain melts some of their snow, of course, but they make it so fast that they have a good base and it will survive. They are planning to fire the guns back up as soon as weather conditions are good again. They should have good skiing in time for the Thanksgiving Holiday.

    Ruby says thanks Cheoah for sending the rain north so I can annoy my mom today.

    AAWW poor Cheesewiz aka Cheoah-the rain makes it VERY boring. We are getting your crummy weather today and hope yours will be better!

We Had A Little Snow

January 25, 2016 |

Our winter may have been mild so far, but, like much of the east coast, we had a little snow this week. And so we had a little fun.
