Taken by Storm

Today Isaac and Steve worked on the deck, the weather was so hot and humid, I talked them into going to see a movie and finishing the deck tomorrow when it was cooler, in the morning. They both took a shower and went off to see Indiana Jones.

Later after Steve returned home, I convinced him to finish the deck, I'd help him and it would be done, he could then carve or do whatever he wanted to tomorrow. There was a chance of rain, too. He wouldn't have the deck project hanging over his head the rest of the holiday weekend.

We went out to eat, returning home around 6pm. By 7 we had the brick all laid. After our shower, we were sitting and watching a little TV. Suddenly there were weather advisories all over the TV. I looked outside, the winds were making the trees bow over. They were predicting 56 MPH winds. We ran out to the yard to put the glass topped table onto the deck, returned the grill to it's place, and the container that holds our chair cushions to it's spot. The winds were so strong, I could see it blowing them around the yard, causing damage to something. We also had a random yellow lawn chair I had to bring up on the deck.

There was a dog running around the back yard. He acted like he wanted to come inside. Later I looked out onto the deck to find we had a new neighbor that had settled into a deep sleep. He stirred when I stepped out to get his picture with the camera....
















It's 11:30 at night, he is still sleeping on the back deck.

He was gone the next morning, he stayed overnight, until the storm passed. He had bitten off the rope they had him tied up with. About 4" were hanging from his collar. He had tags, but wouldn't let me get close enough to see, so I could call his owner. I have done that more than once, called people to come get their dogs.
