Tail wags, all. Stormy here. Can you follow that post title? We had lots of storms starting early yesterday morning. They continued throughout the day and most of the night last night. Dad and Mom got us out during breaks in the action for a little exercise and I thought I'd take you along on the late morning walk Dave and I took. It was an exercise in great timing! Let's go!
Here's what the sky looked like to the north, as we headed down our street:
Did I mention we were heading north? And here's what it looked like a bit to the west:
I do much better with small 's' storms during the day than I do at night, so this didn't really phase me. The lightning was way off, and even though we could see it, I felt relaxed.
We went around a couple corners and down the street, then Mom said it was time to turn and head home. Here's Dave near the crest of one hill:
He's a nice, calm guy to be around. Mighty considerate, too. I assured him I was doing fine.
Here's a shot up one of the side streets, looking north toward our water tower:
Here's the view, looking down our street toward Ao4 HQs:
Dave started to doubt Mom's timing a bit, and I tried to get a little wager going with him.
I'm not sure.... what do you want to wager?
If we get wet before we get home, I owe you two Happy Hearts cookies. If we don't, you owe me the same.
He wouldn't bite. So to speak. I'm not sure if it's because he'd never bet against Mom or he didn't want to risk having to give up any HH cookies!
If you look at the bottom, right-hand corner in this next shot, you'll see our "Support Our Troops" sign. If you look at the sky in the shot, you'll understand how close we cut it!
Not one minute after we got back inside, the sky opened up and poured BUCKETS of rain, and the thunder and lightning came our way. Too bad I couldn't get Dave to take that bet - I'd be munching down on some Happy Hearts right NOW!
