A good *pouring down,
blowing in the windows* rain.
Starting last night.
At first it was humid and breezy.
And then sometime today,
The temperature dropped for the first time
in three months.
And by early this morning,
our rain gauge measured 7 inches
Tonight it shows 12!
Of course, we are now dealing with
flooded fields and closed roads.
And as usual with all the rain,
we lost power today.
We have come to expect that
living in this little mountain town.
With a power grid that has not been
updated since the late 1950's,
power outages are a way of life here.
As it rained and rained and rained,
I snapped pics of a
few members of our little family.
Rain induced naps are the best!
And taking snapshots of sleepy paws
and quiet whiskers make for
This little bundle of cuddles
is one of Molly's babes.
His "Forever Home"
wasn't sure he could be forever with them.
When I heard that,
the sound of brakes screeched in my head.
So the little guy stayed here.
In this "Forever Home"
And while Molly is still taking
her *mama duties*
everyone else has stepped in to help nurture
this little guy.
But, don't tell those big burly friends of his.
He has an image to uphold in the 'hood.

I hope if you needed rain,
it came your way today also.
And if you didn't,
a dry, sunny day was yours to behold!
And remember, don't tell a soul
what a softie Zeke is...
or that he sleeps with a one-eared stuffed rabbit.
p.s. we are still looking for the poor
