The mess....


Sunday evening we had a bad
fast moving storm.
The winds were at 70 mph.

Mike went outside to check things out and
when he came in he made Beth, the kitties and me go
in the basement.  He said it sounded like
a low moan outside.....

It didn't last long but certainly made a mess.


Could have been much worse....
but was still scary!

Even at the ball diamond next to us
the potty blew over!

Hope no one was in there!

All is cleaned up now and even some of the
flowers look happy again....


Did Ozabella help me, you ask....



NO!

Later -- Remington --
not a big fan of storms....
-- out!

PS Don't be too hard on the cat - as long as she didn't scratch your beautiful eyes - that's all that counts!

Storms are scary, and we think Ozabella needed more time to decompress. Was this her first biggie?

I'm sure Ozabella is still too scared to go ouside and help clean up, she's not as big and brave as you...so happy only the flowers were hurt! Wouldn't want anything to happen to any of you!!!

I know my pal Princess Eva in EP MN got a bit frazzled by the storms but her new Thundershirt helped keep her from totally freaking out -

Good to know everyone was safe Remington. Things are just that "things". Two and four legs are much more important :-)xxx

We hate those bad storms. We hear we could see some strong winds with storms over the next few days, but we sure hope not. Too bad about the mess, just more work for the humans. Phantom says to tell Ozzabella he isn't crazy about storms either.

Giant storms that are windy and loud and powerful are scary every where, my friend. It is nice to see that already the plants are rebounding. Ozabella IS still pretty young, maybe she was really shaken up by the storm?

Sorry that it did some damage, especially since you and Mike just did all that outside work.

Oh Remington, we are glad to hear everyone is safe. High winds can be very scary.

Ozabella helped you by not getting underfoot, besides she was working on a catnap. MOL!

Good thing you have a basement refuge! Bet it was fun corralling the cats to go down there. Glad you didn't get hit with an actual tornado. Bet you had everything all ship shape in no time at all.
