Wild Weather!

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

The Germans checking the weather---
We have had rain overnight----(a terrible thing in the winter in the north!)
Coal, the big German Shepherd dog, would not allow me to sleep----kept panting beside my pillow--Finally an enormous amount of snow came crashing down off our steel roof--The walls shook----It really was quite scarey---I got up and put his ""thunder shirt"" on him (ment to calm him!)-and the 2 of us headed for the kitchen to read the paper---(at 12-30am)-Funny how dogs feel something is about to happen before it does!
So----I'm not as wide awake this morning as I would like to be---
Rain is still falling--
It is above zero-----AND----the news says , by noon, all this water outside will freeze and we will get 10cm of snow----
I just told ""himself"" that I don't care for this winter, with the drastic weather flucuations----Himself said, "'Well, what can you do about it?"
So true eh?----
And so, I guess I will manage what I put in my mouth to-day----how I move the body ---talk to my animals-----and dream of--SPRING------It has to be out there somewhere_
Isn't Groundhog Day just around the corner??

This looked like Coal in the night---on my side of the bed

    POOR Coal. My Taffy was so afraid of rain and thunder too! She could tell us a storm was coming over an hour before it got here. I never heard of Thunder Shirts during her life...I am SO sorry for that...we tried everything to alleviate her fright.

    We got rain alsoo and I understand we are to get more snow too...like you (or himself) says "what can we do about it?" BUT...and there is that big butt you talk of emoticon the end is in sight...February will come after tomorrow and then we start all over again!

    Have a emoticon day, Lynda! BIG emoticon for you AND Coal...actually BOTH Germans!

    This really is the up-and-down winter isn't it! Yep, we're almost at the mid point of the season so whether the groundhog sees his shadow or not by the calendar we'll still have this winter to deal with. Some good new, Cornell University reported that because of the extremes in temp this season, there will be less mosquitos come the warmer weather. Apparently there bugs can over-winter through reg temps, but the extremes kills them off - hope they're right!

    I know . . . we're in for 36 degree weather, 3-4 inches of snow today which will have to be cleared pronto because tomorrow's high is only going to be eight degrees farenheit. UGH

    HUGS and DH is right . . . can't do anything about the weather . . . just suck it up, right!

    Animals can be very intuitive and can communicate without words. I am amazed by my little dog at times and others I think she doesn't have a clue. emoticon

    I was out at 2 am with the puglets and it was raining they were NOT thrilled....you are right, rain in the winter is a problem!

    Gotta love those animals in our lives. The Prisoner (cat) looked at the snow on the deck and opted to go out, but the footprint evidence when he begged back in a few minutes later showed he never went more than a few inches beyond the roof eaves! And he got snowy.

    So... onward to a good day... animals in our lives & hearts! emoticon
