One Rainy Afternoon........

Sunday, June 1, 2008

We had rain, thunder & a little lightening for a little over 2 hours this afternoon. We were sitting on the back porch as I said in my earlier post, through the whole storm. Our little 5 yr old Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Dudley, is afraid of storms. He did pretty good today considering. He mostly kept looking at me with that distress in his sweet little brown eyes. LOL! Poor kid. We loved on him, don't worry. He is babied constantly. Oliver, our 8 year old Boxer, could care less. He's like his mama (me), he can sleep through anything. The cats and our almost 7 yr old Australian Shepherd, Chloe were out in the garage (we have a pet room out there for all of them. The garage is their humble abode.) Chloe is deaf and mostly blind, missing an eye and can barely see out of the one she has. She feels the rumbles of the storm and is very sensitive to the vibration. The video below shows Dudley and also some of the rain and wind in some of the gardens out behind us. The large garden that is outlined in Liriope is Olivia & Quinn's Memorial Garden that I am up in arms about. Can't see much through the screen and with the rain and wind. Dudley sure is cute though. It is almost 10 pm and we are back out here on the porch, Bruce reading a garden architecture book and I am feeding my computer addiction. I think I can hear all the flowers and plants faintly sighing with relief and grateful for that long, tall drink that God just gave them.

That reminds me of my dog. She is so scared of the thunder. The poor thing shakes and trembles whenever it comes in.

My husband and I sat outside for that storm too! It was so nice to see rain again. Hopefully it kicked off the start of our regular afternoon showers. Here's hoping for more!
