Wild Wacky Weather
Last night we had one incredible storm! This year we are in a weather pattern with Monsoon storms; normally we get your typical afternoon thunder storm with a bit of rain and then it passes. However, the last week or so has been so different, at least different from the three other summers we've experienced.
Hubby and I couldn't believe the electrical activity last night; I've never experience thunder like we had all night. I'm so thankful our old dog is deaf because he didn't even get upset. The rain poured all night long.
What has me a bit concerned though is that we have our annual family camping trip this weekend and I know that some of the grands will not be in awe of the storms. Our youngest granddaughter, a year now, will be so very scared by all the loud noise. My only hope is that the storms will be milder for the rest of the week.
How about you, are you experiencing weird weather in your part of the country? Do you have animals that don't react well to the thunder? I'm hoping that our next dog will be one that isn't bothered or traumatized by thunder. Since we've always rescued dogs, we have had no way of knowing their reactions to storms but in the future we will be getting a puppy or young dog and I'm hoping that will get the dog on the right track with responding. I know that some breeds do better with noise than others; have you experienced this?
I hope you have a day that is bright with sunshine, breezes and rainbows.
