Hi everypuppy

On Saturday there was a big thunderstorm (storm with a small 's') at our house. It came on very suddenly and lasted for a long time. There was lots of thunder and lightening and rain and hail. It was the worst thunderstorm any of us pups have seen and Mom says she can't remember a worse one either. Mom locked the doggy door and made us puppies stay inside ~ none of us get scared when there's thunder and lightening but there were lots of other puppies in our neighbourhood barking frantically.

The rain came on so quickly and heavy that everything flooded ~ our courtyard was completely under water and we sure were glad the rain eventually stopped cause another inch and the water would have been coming in our back door! The hail stones were real big and Mom was upset when she went outside afterwards ~ all of her veges and things had been damaged. Lots of leaves have holes in them (and some zucchinis too!) and it especially made a mess of our tomato plants, lettuces, strawberries and Mom's poppy plants that were just starting to grow.

Mom went outside and tried to capture some of the thunderstorm ~ in the first movie woo can only really hear the hail, the second movie woo can see a quick flash of lightening and the third movie woo can hear some thunder. The last movie is my favourite ~ it's us puppies coming inside through the water in our courtyard. Woo'll notice me trying to find a way to get inside without going through the big puddle.....I don't like getting my feety feet wet!

Emergency services were very busy afterwards cause there were lots of blocked drains and things. We sure hope there's not another one for a long long time.

Dave said he can relate about not liking to get your feety-feet wet. He HATES that. Me? I think it's a gas to splash in puddles! Ha roooo!
Ammy loved studying the vids - your mom did a great job! Zim said you need to come dry your feety-feet off in his sunbeam! :)
