Greetings and salutations everyone; yes, once again it is I, Mani the semi-small purebred border collie, filling in for the guy I live with, and here to bring you the latest stormy news from our garden. You may remember me from such rain-oriented posts as “Another Rain Movie”, among quite a few others.
Here I am in a characteristic pose.This was taken after my evening walk, which was a really long one, and I got to see and smell a whole lot of stuff. I really enjoyed my walk, and the guy I live with says the walks are going to be a regular feature of my life, so I’m pretty happy about that.
Our story for today actually begins late Thursday night, when a thunderstorm snuck up on us at about 10:30. The sound you hear is not rain. It was pretty scary, but not totally scary.
Then this morning, it started to rain the way the guy says it rains in other places, without fear of all heck breaking loose. If you hear a sound like someone’s rabies tag jingling in the background, there’s a reason for that.
The sun came out eventually, sort of, but it was too wet to do anything constructive, so we took a nap. The guy I live with seems to have our modern lifestyle down pat.
We woke up from our nap, and the guy I live with said the nap made him sleepy, so we decided to take an additional nap, so we wouldn’t feel so sleepy. That was an excellent idea.
I went on my walk, as I said, and then did stuff out in the yard, the way I do. About 8:30 or so the guy I live with suggested I come inside, which I didn’t really want to do, so he picked me up and carried me inside. It was probably just as well that he did. I don’t have an expert take on the weather the way he does.
I think you’ll agree that this is pretty atmospheric.
Then it really rained. I mean super extra rained. The guy I live with says we got ten feet of rain out of this. He might be exaggerating. The street flooded, though.
I hope you enjoyed these rain movies. The guy I live with says he’s ready for summer, and sun.
Until next time, then.
