Okay…Someone Turn Off The Rain

We’ve had tropical conditions lately.  Very hot but also very, very humid.  Then it rains and becomes very, very steamy!

We were all blaming this guy.  Look more rainstorms behind him.  Not Cool Heaty!

 

The Thunder and Lightning was just what was left of Hurricane Alberto.

Sharkhead is really finding this weather a bummer.  He has big plans for the Summer of M&S.  He’s trying to be the star and all the rain is hampering his 15 mins. of fame 🙂

Jimmy and Eddie had fun and to them that is all that mattered.  So I guess it was a win after all, lol!

Memorial Day

We remember the fallen.  Those who gave the last full measure of devotion.

Our Town have a wonderful Memorial to all those who fought for Freedom.  We must honor then not only today but everyday!

Chipper Sings Stormy Weather

The skies were angry and windy last night.  Thank goodness The Roomie went and voted right after work.  Although, a rainstorm didn’t stop her from voting last time when it poured rain.  The sky looked amazing at times.

The rains were heavy and our street looked like a river for about an hour.  We didn’t lose power so the whole group was excited by that because there was a Chopped Marathon on the Food Network!

Homie used to live outside so this storm was nothing compared to some of the Nor’Easters he had to live through.  He thought it was pretty too.  At least the humidity went away and cooler temperatures made it easier to sleep 🙂

Torrential Rains

Yesterday was crazy wet.  We drove by the local golf course and it was completely under water!  OMG!

All of the streams and creeks were flooding thus closing down a lot of the roadways.

Chipper did not care one less.  He loves any adventure, even the ones with rain and snow, lol.

We cut through the State Park to get to work and we encountered this sign.  It was okay because we weren’t going down this road…thank goodness!

This is the Crick.  Most people call it the Creek but in Philly we aren’t like most people.  It flooded so much that it took over the picnic area.  Wow!

We survived and the flooding receded.  All’s well that ends well 🙂

Rainy Days Do Not Get Us Down

The weather has been fierce as of late.  We could just hibernate or we could roam the woods.  We chose the woods!

Homie has spent most of his life as a garden Gnome so when he came to live with us he’s done nothing but explore any place he can.  He is also very photogenic, don’t you think?  The buds of spring are popping out all over the trees.  He thought it was so beautiful!

Chipper has spent his life exploring.  No jealousy among these gnomes though.  Homie loves listening to his adventure stories!

Ingrid just loves being a troll.  The fresh air and woods take her back to her childhood in Norway 🙂

And Elsa…dear Ellie…she just has fun where ever she lands!  We hope you enjoyed your day too!

Easter and More Snow

Easter was nice.  We spent time with family and had some delicious treats.

On Monday, we were greeted with a lovely but quick snowstorm.  We only got about 1/2″ of snow because most of it melted when it hit the ground.  So yay for that!

It’s weird to see snow with the background of cherry blossom trees blooming.  It’s been a tiring couple of day 🙂
