Ian Update

Cyber Paw Pals,

Some downed palm fronds, coconuts and some broken umbrella trees was all Herricane Ian did to us.  We were very fortunate.  Key West did not evacuate, and we stayed in our house.  We heard a lot of wind, but not much lightning.  The biggest issue seemed to be from getting storm surge and having the King Tides.  King Tides is a lunar thing, that results in a higher high tide.

Dad watched the weather channel, while Gemini rested on the couch and Normandy was under the table.  We got several walks but didn't get to go to our beloved Angel Paws.  We will give you an update on how the park faired, when we get a chance to go over there.

Watching Herricane Ian

Bowser, early last week we heard a noise we hadn't heard in two years.  Norm looked at Gemini and barked "Auntie Gem, I think that is the "Angel Dog Jake Tropical Storm Alert System!"  We could hear Jake bark out an alert telling us to get Dad to get things ready in case we had to evacuate.  Jake said he and the other Angel Dogs would try to bark the storm away from his family and ours would try to bark the storm away, but herricanes often have a mind of their own.  We imagined Essex, Deacon, Sherman, Jake and JH barking at the storm.  We even joined them in their barking.

We then got after Dad to get ready to evacuate.  Dog treats, dig food, leashes, a couple dog toys and of course some cheese.  Right now, the herricane track looks like it will avoid us, but we are worried about some of our pals.  However, we trust cats more than we trust herricanes.  

We'll post some pawtographs soon.  Dad is in a rare cleaning mode.  Next on the list is to mow the grass.  All the rain has made it grow and Key West is expecting rain over the next five days.  Dad will get perishable food after the storm passes.  He doesn't want to throw out stuff because the power went out for several hours.
