Ha roo, pups! It's me - Zim! Yesterday we had quite a bit of excitement throughout the afternoon, evening and night! Lots of severe storms in our area - rain, more rain, torrential rain, thunder, lightning, 70-80 mile an hour winds, etc.. Mom saw some cool mammatus clouds form up ... then we went from a tornado watch to a warning. Our city's emergency warning sirens went off a paw-ful of times throughout the evening.
During one of the warning periods, Mom went out on the deck; she shot a short video to show you what it was like. She went out during one of the calm times - we went from high, high winds to ... pretty much nothing. Mom and Dad were tracking the small 's' storms on radar, so she had a fairly good idea where the really bad stuff was and wasn't taking a huge risk. It's dark out there, should be daylight, plus everything was rain-wrapped, so it was hard even for the trained storm spotters to see anything!
Like I said, it was a calm period, so it doesn't look like much, but we thought we'd share it with you anyway.
You might be wondering how we coped with everything. All things considered, we did very well. I knew it was going to be a long night, and that I'd need to keep my energy up. Here I am during another siren blast.
That's right - helping Dad with his cappuccino! Ha roo! Oh, sure, all I got was a little foam, but it was enough to charge me right back up! I needed to stay alert!
Play bows and safe wishes for everypup!
