Just A Little Drizzle

Hu-Dad’s weather apps said we had a chance of a little drizzle, so we took off on our afternoon walk. How did that work out?

The Royal Look Of Scorn - Just a little drizzle
The Royal Look Of Scorn

Mountain weather is notoriously unpredictable, so Hu-Dad uses three different weather apps to monitor incoming storms. Two said no rain for the next hour and one suggested we would get just a little drizzle. None of them predicted the driving rain we received. The Little Prince would like to have a discussion with those weather app companies… after he finishes giving Hu-Dad the Royal Look of Scorn.

    We had the same thing here in Michigan yesterday. Nothing on weather.com and nothing on the phone. Then torrential downpour with wind whipping like a hurricane. And then it was done in 30 minutes.

    I am laughing at the NO TOUCHING rule for towels and brushes. Sorry Typhoon but shaking off all the wet stuff in the house just wont do!!

    Oh Typhoon I feel your pain!!! When the weathermen lie and I get wet, the worst insult is the towel drying. Signed Ruby the untouchable!!!

      Oh, yes, the towel violates the No Touching rule and comes close to the No Brushing rule. Why can’t we just shake off in the house?

Kiska says that on hot, sunny, spring days, you have to find shade wherever you can. Thanks Big Brother Kodiak.
