Tuesday's Storm

 Hi everybody!  It's me, Ragnar!  Tuesday morning, we went on a walk, just like always.  We headed to The Top Of The World - one of our favorite walks!

"Something's off, Ragnar.  I can tell."
"Yeah, you didn't want to come this way - that's really weird!"

It was odd!  Maggie ALWAYS loves going to The Top Of The World, just like I do!  She was hesitant that day, though ...

"Everything's OK, isn't it?"
"Yeah, it's just ... I have this weird feeling ..."

... then we all looked around, and ...

A Kansas thunderstorm, rolling in!

Mom and Dad had checked the radar, but it was clear when we left the house!  I guess it's that time of year when they can pop up really fast!  Mags must have known!

"I tried to warn everybody!"
"You sure did, Mags!  Wow, look over there!"

It was really beautiful, in a Kansas thunderstorm, really cool lighting kind of way!  Mom assured us we'd be fine, so we continued on our way:

The lighting was awesome!

"Look at how powerful that storm is!"
"Yet beautiful!"
"What good puppies!"

Have I mentioned Mags and I have no fear whatsoever of thunderstorms?  Even so, we decided to stick to the low trails and not take the path up to The Top Of The World.  It just didn't seem safe!  

Here are another couple of shots of the storm:

We usually try to stay out of thunderstorms, but we were already a couple miles from the house by the time we saw the storm so there wasn't much we could do about it.  We ended up getting pretty soaked, but were fine after a good toweling off!

Thanks for coming with us!  We hope you can appreciate the beauty of our storm!

Sköl!
Ragnar

  1. Those are some pretty impressive sky shots. Glad you got home safely. We have been caught off guard in some nasty storms too. We aren't afraid of thunderstorms, well, Misty might be a little bit:)

  3. It's good you two aren't scared by thunder but we wouldn't enjoy being caught in a soaking rain.

  4. That is the best way to accumulate a pup to a thunderstorm.
