Today's paw walk forecast calls for more rain here in the Pacific Northwest. Our hearts go out to the community of Darrington and Oso where a slide wiped out an entire neighborhood. We live in the south part of Snohomish county, but Mom grew up in about the middle of the county and has been to both towns. Heavy rain predicted for Darrington tonight, and hopefully the rain will let up until Friday like the weatherperson (who Mom swears is a habitual liar) predicts. Friday will be raining again into Saturday and up north it has a different weather pattern, but I do know they have a lot more moss growing on trees and in the grass. My wet frizzy ears would tell me that means they get more rain than we do.
Meanwhile tree pollen is high so Mom has been sniffing and occasionally explodes from her nose. Or something along those lines. Sometimes it lasts just once and sometimes she walks up and down the hall trying to curse but she just honks out through her nose. I've seen Misty do this as well, so that may explain why she and Misty are so "protective" of each other. Digusterrrrring if you ask me.
Here is what the weather looked like off the back yard tonight. It was raining very hard even though you can't see it, but it's only 5:30 pm.
|It's much darker and stormy than it looks. |
|Really windy too.|
|The sun is out in the front yard as the sun is setting. However still pouring down rain.|
|Yep, still pouring down rain. Those trees aren't blurry back there for a reason.|
|AHHHHH!!! Look what the rain drags in.|

That's what we have. Spring rain and finally in the upper 40's at least...until Mother Nature decides to mess with our garden and Mom again. She still has plants that are popping up she refuses to pull the mulch off because there will be that "cold / snow / heavy frost snap".
