We were supposed to get the first rain of the year Thursday. Not just any rain, but the beginning of several days of storms, accompanied by wind gusting up to sixty mph.
While we were checking to be sure we had imaginary gas for our non-existent backup generator (the one we don’t have and thus can’t use when the power goes out), the neighbors made it clear they weren’t worried.
The turkeys left their galoshes at home.
And the cats didn’t bring umbrellas to the backyard bowl at dinner time.
Why should anyone worry? It was blue skies and temperatures in the sixties all day. So naturally the feline politics went on as usual.
Hopefully everyone has someplace dry to hole up. For those of you east of the Rockies, I’ll add “warm” to the wish list.
