Of Collies and Butterflys

We have been breathing a sigh of relief as Herricane Irene will not be visiting us.  The hoomans, dogs and cats in the Turks and Caicos Islands and the Bahamas are in our prayers today.  We hope Irene goes out to sea and does not impact the Carolines or East Coast. 

Sherman with a Special Report
Listening to the weather channel, we heard about the 1821 Herricane that went directly over New York City on 3 September.  That herricane caused a 13 foot rise in the tide in only one hour.  Then of course there was the Long Island Express Herricane of 1938, that caused much damage.  Those events make us worry about Asta and our other cyber-paw pals.

Trying to Bark Away a Herricane
A while ago Dog Dad mentioned something called the Butterfly Effect.  This Butterfly Effect believes that something small can have a huge impact on events.  With that in mind we decided to try our best to bark Irene away, so it wouldn't hurt any paw.  We call that the Collie Effect.  Dog Dad believes we are to late in the event to have an impact on the Herricane.  What do you think?

Hi guys!
Do you think some Husky howls added to your barks could make the hurricane just blow out to sea and go away? We have some awesome howlers here that would be glad to help!
We did hear that it is supposed to cause a lot of heavy rain here (pouting)
Hugs & Howls,

Thought about you guys, Sherman, and we're glad to know the hurricane is missing you!

Dawn said...

I think if we add Sheltie barks to the Husky howls and the Collie barks it will just drive that ole hurricane far out to sea!

I think we nearly got it barked away! Mom needs to check the news to make sure!

Well, it did weaken a bit before reaching land but it still did a lot of damage. You did what you could to help.

Asta and some others have been heard from as being safe and okay. Khyra is without electricity, as are many others. We hope others will be able to check in as their power is restored and/or they are able to return home.
