It was a dark and stormy night...

Our first Pacific Frontal System moved through last night. This is the radar map... we are right in the middle of the big yellow blog. And the wind was up to 90 km/h (that is 60 km/h for non-metric folk!).
 Sandy wanted to go outside... of course... But it was a dark and stormy night... there he is right in front of the red arrow.
 Oh wait... there he is!! It was pouring rain and blowing hard and Sandy quickly decided that dark and stormy nights were not so much fun.
 Better to scamper back inside...
And dry out in front of the wood stove... ahh... that's better!
 And snuggle up with a good book in front of the fire, snuggled in a nice warm blanket. He's liking the Life of Pi but wonders why there aren't any bears in the story!
Mama's finished the book today and Sandy has been enthralled with it.... although now he wants to go and see the movie... demanding little bear!

  1. Oh, a stormy nice, nice wood burning stove, and a good book, sounds like fun actually! Provided there is nice tea or coffee with some cookies! Hehe

  2. You be careful Sandy! You might have more excitement than getting wet on such a stormy night. Those howling wind gusts could pick you up and carry you away!

  3. @Jerry & Ben - A nice hot chocolate would have been good... would have been... Shortly after Mama took those pictures, the power went out! Now that was a dark and stormy night! But no hot chocolate...

    @Buttons - How right you are... power outages are way more excitement than I can handle! At least we had flashlights and candles. It was only a few hours but the neighbours say the longest it's ever been has been 3 days (!!!)...

  5. @Hammie - Yes, we heard today that a big tree took out a bunch of powerlines which is why we had the power outage. There are no big trees near our place, so we should be good! Mama is trying to track down the maker of the cute doors... but fairies/elves are beary secretive!
