Weather Ranting Works

Warning:  I'll be doing more weather ranting in the future because it works!

I awoke this morning to a very strange, but kind of familiar, sound.  My groggy mind couldn't place it at first.  It was THUNDER!  As I blinked the sleep from my eyes I recognized the flashes of LIGHTNING!  By the time I leaped from bed I could hear the sound of blessed rain.

That was hours ago and it is still raining.  Ah....   This rain is so welcome that I don't even mind that the electricity keeps blinking.

For those of us living beyond the sidewalks, Mother Nature somewhat rules our life.  At For Love of a Dog, we live in the country, garden organically and raise much of our own food supply.   Weather is our partner, though sometimes we have a hard time getting along.  Today he/she is working to our benefit and we are thrilled! 


  1. Hi Y'all,

    We in the Southeast are all praying for rain, blessed rain, to at least put a dent in our drought. So glad y'all got some. This has been a year of suffering for many, many farmers.

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  2. I don't mind the thunder and rain, but my furry sister Nala does. She gets very, very scared. :(

    Woofs & hugs <3,

  3. Hmmm... if weather ranting works, perhaps I need to give it a try. I'd like to request cooler weather, some rain, no thunder...

  4. browndogcbr - you are so right! This rain came way too late for area farmer. Plus, we're all going to see the effects of this drought at the grocery store...

    To everyone - thanks for celebrating with me! Believe it or not we got some more rain today. Tucker was not too pleased at another morning of lightning and thunder, but as long as it brought rain, we're happy!


Go ahead... bark at us!
