A Wet Boom

With days of rain (and more on the way thanks to a little subtropical system headed our way), we’re all just wet—including a wet Boom Boom.

Look at all that rain.
Look at all that rain.

We’ve had days of rain. The forecast is for more days of rain. And to make it even wetter, the National Weather Service identified a “disturbance” in the Atlantic with “sub-tropical tendencies”—aka, rain. And guess where it’s headed? Yep, the Boom is looking at it.

Embrace the rain.
Embrace the rain.

Our morning and afternoon walks are in the rain. Our yard time is in the rain. And we keep Hu-Dad up in the middle of the night as the sky rumbles and grumbles (because we can’t let him sleep through that). On the bright side, this isn’t a scratch and sniff blog or you would get to smell wet dog.

Don't you want a hug from a soaking wet Boom?
