what happened last night

Greetings and salutations, everyone; yes, once again it is I, your popular host, Mani the purebred border collie, here today to talk about last night. You may remember me from such posts as “The Night Rain”, among so many, many others.

Here I am in a characteristic pose.
You can see the hairs on my posterior being blown about by the swamp cooler, just like last time.

In yesterday’s post I showed a picture of me, safe in my Upstairs Fort, at night.
This was what happened.

It rained that way for an hour.

I’ll leave you with pictures of me taken this afternoon, while my dinner is being prepared, at this Michelin-starred restaurant for purebred border collies.

Until next time, then.

    Was the electricity out? Is that why it is so dark? It sounds great, although I know loud storms with lightning and thunder are no fun for canine people. Rhody and watched the dry lightning that started the CZU Fire two years ago, but we could not hear the thunder. It was TOTALLY weird, but at least it was not too terribly scary.

    • tonytomeo says:

      Well, the fire was scary later.

      • paridevita says:

        That’s what we think about here. The guy I live with says we could use more rain late in August, and in September, too, but maybe that’s not very likely.

    • paridevita says:

      No; the guy I live with turned off the patio light, to make the movie more atmospheric. Thunder and lightning are really scary, and some years we can have a lot of it.
      In his last summer, Chess, the purebred border collie who lived here before me, had to endure 275 thunderstorms passing over or by the house, from May until October. That was an unusual year, to say the least. The guy I live with said Chess was scared all the time, which is pretty sad.

      • tonytomeo says:

        Oh, that is SO sad, but at least Chess was happy most of the time. I sometimes apologize to Rhody for our minimalistic lifestyle and lack of a spacious garden to roam around in (since dangerous wildlife lives here), but he regularly reminds me that he is very happy with our lifestyle, particularly since so many of his friends are here. That is one of the reasons why we are in no major rush to relocate to one of the other properties.

      • paridevita says:

        I like my big back yard, with lots of stuff to chase and bark at (though I sometimes get yelled at because I make so much noise), but summer is definitely not my favorite time of year. It’s either too hot, or there’s scary lightning and thunder.
        And I didn’t get to see the four very large garter snakes in the south garden (there’s a gate); I might have gone crazy trying to chase them.
        It didn’t rain today, and we might be done with that for a while.

      • tonytomeo says:

        Canine people are more easily satisfied than human people are. We generally want more than what we have.

      • paridevita says:

        I think so, though I’d like more squirrels to bark at.
        I do know the guy I live with bought the portable swamp cooler mostly for me. He does get things for himself, but not always things he needs.

    Oh, blessed rain. So envious. Promises of rain here never materialize and just keep getting pushed back to the end of the week. You survived the storm well Mani. Well done.

    • paridevita says:

      It’s kind of strange that this is happening. The guy I live with says this is “more like last century”, but no one here is complaining.
