This was the scene on my bed at about 8:30 this morning. It is hard to take these pix, because the kids are so close to me.
Joey is on his back at the right side, Sammy at the top middle and China on the left.
China raised her head, and her muzzle was all messed up from having it pushed into the bed! Next to her is Max, and farther down is Ali.
Around the time I took these, there was an occasional shower outside. It was really nice and refreshing. I had looked at the rain gauge about 7:00 and we had just a touch of rain overnight, between .1 and .2 inches. The forecast was for rain today and tomorrow, some of it possible intense, thanks to Hurricane Dolly.
By 9:30, it was raining cats and dogs. Correct that .... It was raining birds and dogs!! These two little guys had sought shelter on the deck , clinging to the back of a lounge chair.
And the dogs were out looking at what was going on!
Look at Ali. He seems to be saying, "Holy crap!" Sam says, "Can we go in now??"
And by 10:30, it was still raining torrentially. Since 7:00, I have had just short of 2" of rain!! Some of my newly planted grass seed is floating away, I'm sure, because the back yard slopes. Guess I get to replant, eh??
And I thought I'd let you see/hear what was going on....
I am 891 miles from Brownsville, TX, BTW!
It's 11:30 now, and it has let up for now. Whew!
