Storms are threatening

Everyone seems to be talking about Stormy Daniels. Our national political scene is in shambles and frankly our weather situation is as well. The meteorological scene has been insane and the number of hurricanes frightening.

This August, instead of having the usual drought, we had lots of rain. The grass is unbelievably green as we are heading into the last of September and October is on the horizon. The mosquito population is unrelenting and my recent garage work had a constant buzzing of the nasty insects.

The storms have been relentless. The hurricanes have been terribly abundant in the Atlantic as well as the Pacific. To think that the powers that be are dissing the idea of global warming.

Today I went out with newly groomed Stewie for our morning walk. It was gray outside but I didn’t fear rain. The minute I am out there, I hear thunder and then I soon hear the lightning warning coming from nearby Deerspring Pool. I did my utmost to move Stewie to do his job and hightailed it back before the storm began.

It got very dark and gray but so far we have had nothing happen. It is warm and humid outside.

This will not be a most fun day for the kids, as we really cannot go outside. It is just too threatening.

We have not yet seen our charges as they are going to the doctor for a well check for the youngest and an ear check for the older. The thought is that the older may have an ear infection.

We are hoping that we shall have a good day despite what looks like a less than a auspicious beginning to the day with that hanging over our heads.

All of a sudden I hear the pitter patter of raindrops on the roof. I guess that this gray and threatening atmosphere was real.

Winter could be very interesting.
