It's me, Miss Moo, and my brofur Jack a-roo, back online
again after Miss All-in-a-Huff Irene blew thru.
It wasn't as bad as the weather peeps expected, but things were rockin' & rollin' fur a while!
Mom took a few pics thru the patio doors -
no special effects here, just Jack braving the storm as Irene blasted away on Sunday.
It was windy! I joined Jack during a pause in the rain.
Jack says we should call this picture
"Paws in the Rain during Pause in the Rain".
Mom & dad took us out fur a walk to see how things were going in the 'hood.
Our neighbors lost their mimosa tree, but that was the only tree down.
Things look pretty good overall, Mom!
(I think my big Moo-grin cheered everyone up.)
Lots of leaves down, our willow tree lost several branches, and Mom noticed half the Russian Olive bush keeled over. We also lost electricity for 30 hours, and lost phones/tv/internet till a couple hours ago ( about 57 hours total). Here is Mom on Monday, waiting for water to boil so she could make some coffee. That instant stuff- International Coffees- isn't so bad in a pinch!
She talked to her brother up in Maine tonight- he still doesn't have any power - he was "grilling by flashlight" to use all the thawed meat from his freezer! Sure wish he wasn't so far away - we could help take some of that spare meat off his hands!
We're furry grateful Irene has gone and wasn't too destructive. We have our paws crossed fur those who suffered losses, are still discombobulated, or have a lengthy "to do" list left after Irene. (She was not so kind in other places) Mom & Dad said it was kind of nice - neighbors all talked to each other, there were lots of impromptu "grilling parties" and hurricane get-togethers taking place.
We just do what we dogs do everyday- live life as it comes. Some days you're wet, some days you're dry, some days you're hungry, some days you feast. Maybe it takes not having electricity fur the peeps to realize that life is pretty good without all those gadgets & distractions. Just enjoy what ever happens, and, as some wise guys once wrote, "Love the ones you're with."
Miss Moo, Just sayin'
