ThunderstormsPosted: July 23, 2013
I had planned to tell you about some water fun I had in the park yesterday. But this morning we had the most incredible thunderstorm and I couldn’t not mention it.
I woke mummy at 5.30am to ask her what all the noise was about. She said the clouds were playing a noisy game of bitey face and was nothing to worry about. I decided to sleep on the bed anyway, you know just incase mummy got scared.
At 7am when we were due to head out for our walk the rain started getting heavier so out came mummy’s wellies and we set off. The rain was torrential and within moments we were both soaked. And then there was a flash of lightning. Within seconds there was the loudest crash of thunder I’ve ever heard. I admit I freaked a little but mummy stayed calm and told me all was fine so I settled down. But really her heart was racing and she realised this had been a bad idea. She was worried I’d pick up on her nerves so we started to head home but the thunder was following us!
We’d only been out for 20mins but by the time we got back we both looked like drowned rats. Mummy decided to let the rain subside and then we’d head out again. But it was hammering against the windows and the thunder kept crashing. I wondered if it wanted to come in so I went to the front door but mummy said it liked being out in the rain.
Mummy put the tv on to drown out the sound and we played with my ball for a bit. Eventually I guess the clouds got bored of their game and it stopped, so we headed back to the park to finish my walk. Lots of other dog walkers had the same idea and everyone commented on the storm. One dog had got so upset she had to have a tranquilizer. I’m glad I wasn’t that bad.
The naughty storm has made mummy late for work, partly due to our late walk and partly because of signalling problems on the line. I hope it doesn’t come back anytime soon.
Did you have a storm this morning? And if so did you get scared?
