Trouble on a Tuesday - More Weather -by Phod


Dear pals, 

Last week we had a horrible, terrible, not good day.

It started Wednesday when our weather was 13C/55F with rain, thunder and very high winds. These winds knocked trees and branches down, including one that landed on the hydro line behind our house. This took out our power starting at about 4:30 pm on Wednesday.

Then the weather turned very cold. Overnight it went down to -18C/0F.  The power stayed off. Even with the generator and fire, parts of the house got cold. For some reason the internet didn't like the generator (it is usually ok) and caused problems. Lady had to wear gloves while working in her office. Man got fed up and took the afternoon off and went to a movie.  During an outing we decided to run away in the afternoon to look for power. Lady brought us back from the sugar shack. She was thrilled to have spent 30 minutes chasing us around Callie's yard. When trying to fill the generator Lady got covered in gas. Lady was grumpy and miserable and eventually gave up trying to work too. 

The power returned around 5:30 pm.  It has been a long 25 hours. 

Now you would think the mischief would have ended when the power came back, but it didn't. When hanging our leashes up and turning off the garage light, I snuck in. Lady didn't notice. Man was on a work call and Lady was in the tub and she heard the garage door sort of opening and closing. She realized what had happened and jumped out of the tub and ran, leaving a trail of bath water, to the garage. I was very upset. She said it was an accident. I can't believe she locked me in the garage for 87 million years (it was maybe 45 minutes at the most). 

Anyways, it was a horrible, terrible, not good day and I am glad it is over.

Your pal Phod

Remember to go to yesterday's post for our contest - it is early this year!

  2. PHOD OMDs that was 87 hours of the worstest nightmare imaginable.
    I hope Lady didn't have icicles form on her during her dash to the door in the cold
