Willow

sigh

Our weather this weekend and today has been doing a nice impersonation of a wild winter. I can't remember the last time we had several thunderstorms within days of each other. I battened down as much as I could over the weekend and today is still looking very blustery. I have a dinner thing tonight, and am not much looking forward to driving my little car around in squall conditions, even when it's just down the street.

We had thunder and lightning this morning between 4 and 5. I know this because I had a quadraped (yes, too much Enterprise for me) barking and whining and begging at me to stop it. Literally. He would beg in that meerkat position and would not take the explanation of how I can't turn the wind off as good enough.

In the end, I had to yell at him to be quiet. He doesn't like being up on the bed, wouldn't take comfort from me and wouldn't settle. And 5am was approaching. I don't like sighting 5am much.

Grr.
