Aftermath of Matthew

Yesterday we woke up (in the wee early hours) to da weather alert radio screeching out dat we had a Tornado Warning.  Yikes.... da peeps did not like being woke up so early to dat.      It was a loud morning (about every 20 mins we got another and different alerts).   Luckily all da tornados dat the radio announced did not come into my hood.    It was quite da morning.  

Oh, did I remember to say dat Mom is not pleasant when she don't get enough sleep?   She made me wear my leash in da house all day (so she could easily catch me if we needed to go to our safe place in da house).     AND I didn't get to go outside to play or get my long walkies.    It was a run out and pee and den back in the house kinda day.  

Still windy out here.


We loss power last night at 8:30pm but it was back on this morning by 8:30am.   Thank you utility crews.


I dragged Mom and Aunty D outside so I could do a walk-about dis morning to inspect my hood.   Dis is a popular pee-mail post.   Can you tell?


I got introduced to tons of palm fronds.  

I was going to leave some peemail on dem ALL but it was too many.

I drank a ton of water when I got home.   Had to refuel.


Just another one of dos frond thingys.




OMD...... a big tree is down on my favorite walking trail around da lake!

Da only damage to our house is some siding da lost a battle wiff Matthew's winds.   They reported 75 mph winds at da airport last night.   

We were very lucky but Aunty D says next time if it is Cat 2 or more.... we'll evacuate.

Prayers for all those with major flood damage.

Wags,
