Wild weather and other things.

Greetings loyal readers.  Now, New Zealand is not known for its tornadoes.  Well, one happened in Auckland yesterday with deadly results.   Me and Nellie were sad to learn that three people died.  It must have been very frightening.

It was very windy here today and mummy was a bit concerned that some branches might come down from some of the trees.  But, so far so good.  Speaking of trees. Mummy muttered something about putting up a christmas tree. A tree inside!! Watch this space.

Now some of you know that We have been visited by S.O.D (someotherdoggy).  Well he has been back again.   Here is evidence of his visitation.

See the evidence of digging.

Some has been chewing on a stick in the study.

What is mummy to do?  She never seems to see this S.O.D.  He is too quick and clever to be caught.  Mummy says she will have to put her thinking cap on.  Love Nellie and Jasper, the two bestest maremmas in the land.

    What an amazing garden path. Who made it?

  2. Yes, what terrible weather it was yesterday in Auckland. I’m glad to hear you are both OK where you are. Up here it is very wet and windy today – Mum says the tail-end of the bad weather from Auckland has travelled across the Hauraki Gulf and hit the Coromandel. The house shakes a bit upstairs when it’s really gusty, but I’m not scared by that. (It had better not thunder, though…)

    I know who chewed the sticks-it was Kaci. That’s her favo(u)rite thing to do.

    are you sure it was a doggy who did that? Thank goodness you are ok and didn’t experience damage from the tornado!

    I was in Auckland, on the North Shore, yesterday when the storm struck. Driving back to Hamilton was NOT a lot of fun! Very scary. And it isn’t great up here today either. A good day for Zak and I to stay inside and chill out.

    I’ve only seen one tornado and it scared me senseless…here in Florida it’s the hurricanes and they can be pretty wicked…I think I saw S.O.D. in my yard yesterday…He knocked over some plants before I could catch him 😉

    When we heard about the tornado we were shocked. I’m glad you are safe. That SOD is getting cleverer!

    We are very sorry to hear of the tornado and loss on your side of the world…mother nature is a very temperamental old bat these days.

    You two stay in and maybe do some investigating around all these SOD attacks..

    Hmmm… Maybe hide somewhere and wait for S.O.D to make an appearance…?

  10. …hmmm maybe Justin the Beaver was in your back yard? ;o)

  11. We’re so glad that the big wind didn’t hurt you. We don’t like big winds. That’s cool if you get a tree in the house. Mom says she won’t get one ‘cuz we would climb in it and knock things off the branches. Aren’t trees for fur people????

  12. Glad you guys are OK. Stay safe xx

  13. Bert says:

    So glad you are ok. My Vickie is a day behind on her news an when we heard about it we hurried over to see if you were safe. “Sigh of relief”

    Tornadoes are awful:( We have lots of those in Oklahoma! We have our very own storm shelter that mom makes us get in when the weather looks bad! It gets quite crowded with all us dogs and mom, dad, and whoever else comes over to use the shelter! Glad you are okay!

  15. Boomdeeadda says:

    The weather sounds pawsitively scary, I’m so glad you’re safe. That’s a tragic thing for all the families involved.

    I bet mommy was happy it was only a stick in the study and not a big soggy bone….giggle.

    I’m so sorry that three people died from a tornado, they are so frightening and destructive. I’m glad you all are Ok 🙂

  17. Emmadog says:

    That is sad about the tornado deaths. We get lots of tornadoes in the spring and early summer here…sometimes they are deadly but not as much as they used to be because of all the warning systems these days but they are scary!
