We were not home for the flooding and extremely stormy weather the past week or so. I have nothing to complain about, but why should I let that stop me?
One of the FYI facts that should be given to all those moving to the Gulf Coast of Texas is, either the big faucet in the sky is ON or OFF. There is no moderation in the weather here. Most years there is a rainy period followed by drought conditions. This year, as you may already know, we have had terrible flooding, and there could be more on the way. Today it is sunny, with only one thunderstorm in the wee hours. Tomorrow and the rest of the coming week, most days are to include thunderstorms somewhere, at some time.
Our dog Bear has developed thunder anxiety, and he scans the skies (well, the ceilings) worriedly when he hears rain or thunder. We got him a ThunderShirt, which is supposed to help, and maybe it is starting to ease the anxiety somewhat. He hides behind and under furniture and shakes uncontrollably, so it is hard to witness. I also bought a homeopathic remedy for him in case the vest does not do the whole job. Poor old Bear!
