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.
Blessings, Noreen


  1. Praying that God grants your granddaughter peace if there are storms....that He will create a wonderment in her as well. Do a new work in her Father. Bless their camping trip and keep them dry Father. In Jesus name, AMEN

    Our dog and our daughters dog rarely seem to notice when thunder booms unless it is house shaking. (c:

    I'm so thankful we have gotten some rain...central Kansas where my parents live is SO DRY. Our sprinkler system got fried in a power surge so I'm thankful God is watering my bushes and flowers.
    Hope you have a grand day!

  2. We had wild storms about 6 weeks ago here in Texas. Now it's just BLASTING heat!!! How I MISS the great northwest!!!! My cat is always so full of himself until a storm comes along and he's usually to be found under a bed! LOL

    Blessings to you sister!

  3. Oh my!!! I do love a good thunder shower in the summer. Only if inside the safety of home.
    Happy day to you Noreen!

  4. Our weather is cooler this the 80's. Today is overcast, but the sun peeked out for a few minutes. It looks like it could rain, but that isn't in the forecast.

    I hope everything goes well for your family camping trip this weekend!

    Have a great day! ☺

  5. i am out here in california writing this in a ski is cold out here on the coast

    happy to see you at farmhouse kitchen, my friend

    kary and teddy

  6. I sitting here with a thunder storm just finishing up.....We usually have afternoon storms....It's been so hot here in N.C. that I am not surprised that we have had so many storms......

    My cat Simon is usually king of the hill until a thunder storm then he disappears but reappears pretty soon after the noise is over......

    I do hope you don't have any storms during your family trip this weekend....if you do I too pray she will not be afraid.......I hope you make many memories during your time together.....

    Hugs and blessings

  7. Hi! Noreen, glad you all were safe! And prayers for a calm wk-end! I know what it is to comfort a grand during these times! but God has always calmed the storms!when prayer was said!! Happy:)Thursday! Pics, were so precious of those girls!

  8. We've had wild storms here, and right now only one pup that they make a little nervous. I'm hoping none of this transfers to the puppy~~Speaking of pups, I hope that Reggie is doing well, and I hope YOU are too!!
