As we mentioned yesterday, it was sweltering here last week. Finally, on Friday a storm blew though which helped break the heat.
Lady has taken Friday afternoons off for the summer. She was sitting in the driveway assembling patio furniture listening to the thunder. As the storm came closer she could hear us upset in the house so she moved inside. She got in before it poured and poured. Thunder crashed. Valium was administered. Valium was not effective as at 2:50 our power went out.
We were very upset. Lee was walking around trying to destroy things. The leash inside was tried. Finally, Lady and her Kobo ended up in the closet, Lee pressed up against the wall and Lady sitting pressed up to her. Phod was in and out, drooling on Lady. This seemed to help. Lee was able to settle, and Lady was able to lay down, squished up against Lee and have a floor nap.
The power was restored about 3.5 hours, but not until the Man had gone to get gas for the generator and started it. Seriously, the minute he clicked start, it all came on.
While it was not the most fun afternoon, we were grateful for the break in the heat. That evening Lady could wear pants and a hoodie.
