Thankful Thursday

Late post and no pics, but we wanted to say "something" today.  It has been raining almost every day for SO long!  Hardy a day escapes some rain.  And it doesnt just fall gently.  This morning (while we all slept til Noon, TBT included), we got 3" and it dint even SOUND like it was raining that hard...

The yard is a jungle of over-sized plants, the ground is allus wet, an the rain can start suddenly when we are just sitting on the deck.  Fortunately, Dad keeps his ears forward and runs for the deck door at the least sound of rain ta let us in.  Well, not Laz, he still isnt allowed out.

Dad says this is the most rain he has ever seen in July and August even when there were hurricanes.  He even has had ta dig a trench from the basement patio to downhill a bit ta keep it from getting into the basement.  Thats good, cuz we (Ayla and Marley) remember when it got in an surrounded our litterboxes!    That was awful...

So we are Thankful today that it dint happen again.  But Bast, we sure would like ta wak around outside with wet paws!

Well, OK, some old pics...

Heavy rain.

This one is cool cuz it is from 2008 but EXACTLY what we got today!

Last year at this time, our "special" trees an shrubs were dying from drought.  Go figure...
