We are having a very eventful night - as we speak. I got home at around 7:20 and there was heavy rain... I debated on whether or not to let the dogs out or leave them in their cages... so I checked the weather channel and decided to go ahead and let them out because there were severe storms on their way... little did I know that the severe storms (we had 2 tornado warnings, one had been spotted about 15 miles east from here) were going to hit in 10 minutes! Poor Pellet and Cali barely had time to pee before I rushed them in the bathroom along with the cell phone and flashlight and then the power went out. We miserably waited in the bathroom - Cali was crying because she hadn't finished her "business" outside, Pellet was restless because he was hungry and I had no idea what to do but pray. I was trying to listen out for loud noises but couldn't hear a thing.
Power came back 30 minutes later and regular life resumed until about 10 minutes ago when Norm called to tell me that power was out - again - at all of Reynolds Plantation and that all the restaurant staff (along with dining members) were moving to the basement of the clubhouse... So we are back in the bathroom (this time with a camera and power!). Here are some aides to help you visualize: me, a 100+ pound dog and a 65 pound dog in a spare bathroom:
Cali just walked underneath Pellet - this is a common practice around here, but in a small bathroom it's nothing but obnoxious.
Cali is fascinated by the bathtub. I think that getting her head stuck in the curtain might have something to do with it...
Here she jumped on him - this is also an every day thing, but again in a small bathroom it's unnecessary behavior. She likes to put her front feet on top of him and then she walks along with him as he walks. It's actually very funny. One of these days I'm going to catch it on video.
She is the instigator -
Finally they learned to co-exist in the small space.
UPDATE (since the time I started typing the post): everyone is fine. Norm is fine - he's on his way home. Craziness has ceased for the moment. Apparently these spurts of storms stretch all the way to Alabama, but thankfully they move very very fast... I think we might have a long night ahead of us.
