I am writing this week’s blog from the comfort of my couch in a warm house. Outside: a constant torrential downpour and severe wind. It is reported the metal roof was peel back like a banana off a restaurant about twenty-five miles away (99 mph gust).
Zen has had a rough couple of days. We endured a severe lightning storm night before last. It lasted almost six hours. That is a rare event in this area. Normally, those kinds of storms move through quickly.
Zen was up and down all night during the storm, and today has been not much better for him since play and walk time has diminished considerably. We did get out this morning and both of us became drenched. I quickly figured out that we were going to have a slight a problem, when I pitched the Chuckit and the wind drove the tennis ball backward!
Later in the day, when I let Zen out the door to go potty, a wind gust threw the opened screen door back and directly into his head. I thought he was going to keel over with that. He was stunned a bit and then proceeded outside. He is restless and confused with his routine changed. Guess humans can experience the very same thing.
In this storm, I am very grateful and thankful to be able to provide myself with warm meals and a hot cup of coffee when so many are still going without simple conveniences due to Sandy. And for those who endure going without, due to life circumstances...every day.
I envision everyone with a warm home to reside, a lovely Thanksgiving meal and the company of those loved and held dear in life.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING BLESSINGS
