Well, scuze the pun, but my sister, Peekie, is all "puffed up" cuz she just got a DDP and new pictures and waaaaaaaaay too much attenshun, both from mama and our Catster friends.
Last night a cold front blew in. When I say blew, I mean BLEW in. Mama and I were watchin the telbishun, and it started makin this funny noise. I got kinda startled, but mama told me not to worry; it was just the severe storm warnin thingie. Most of our storms come in from the southwest, but this one was comin from Canada. Hey, Squirrel and Kitcat, didja send your bad weather down here? Anyway, mama went outside and took down our umbrella. It was only bout five minutes later that all heck broke loose. The wind was comin straight at our deck and our maters and our big front window. Everything was rattlin and blowin around. It made me nervus, but mama just kept watchin the telbishun and pettin me and sayin it would be OK. There wasn't even any thunder or lightnin, just lotsa wind. When mama looked out our big window, she could barely see. There was somethin that looked like smoke or dust blowin straight at our house. Mostly the bad part of the storm was over by bout 9 clocks, and then mama and Peekie and I all went to the beddyroom and readed for awhile. In the middle of the night lotsa rains camed, and it got pretty cool.
When grampster called this mornin, he said lotsa peeples in town lost their elek-tricity, and it did not come back on for hours. There was a big fire just north of town at a place called Hill 57. Mama's cousin told grampster the fire trucks could not even get to the fire cuz so many peeples were out watchin it and blockin traffic, and the police mans were writing lotsa tickets.
This mornin when mama went outside, there were leaf thingies everywhere all over the lawn. All our chair cushions were blowed around on the deck, one of our little end table thingies was dumped off the deck into the fern garden, and boy were our mater plants beat up! At first mama did not notice the birdie house that was all wonky, but later she and grampster fixed it. Mostly mama spent lotsa time tryin to fix the maters. Some branches would not stay up, so mama tooked giant rubberbands and tied em to the cages. They don't look very nice, but mama just wants the maters to get finished so she and daddy can eat em all up. The storm blowed in lotsa weeds, and mama walked around in the cold wind and rain and picked up all the stuff that was blowed against the fence. Now we are spendin the rest of the day inside where it is warm.
They say if you don't like the weather in Big Sky Country, just wait 10 minutes; it will change. I wonder if it is snowin today in Glacier Park?
Hey that's what we say here in New England too! Wait 5 minutes and it'll change. MOL
That was a super scary storm Gunnie! Mom was at work at the newsypaper, and the police scanner was going crazy! And now it's so cold! This big sky state sure is crazy!
OMC Gunnie, i sure am glad you are all ok. we get lots of big winds here too and we just kind of huddle around mom and dad when it get scary. maybe that wind blew in autumn,
Wow! Sounds like quite a storm!
