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.

Dog Speed,

Gemini & Normandy

I saw Hurricane Ian predictions 2.5 days ago ...doesn't look good, stronger when it gets to u. Guess you'll be traveling north to Georgia. Hoping all to be OK, lesser damage than expected. PRAYERS!!!!!!!

Well, what a difference a half-day makes! BOL Looks like the track is more westward of u now. Still, u will battle rain and flooding. Like u said, don't trust hurricanes. The cat comment we will let go for now :-)
