The Big Blow

Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas.  Now as you all know it is supposed to be summer here in sunny New Zealand, therefore, hot, sunny and warm.  But for some reason this summer seems to have other ideas.  Today a weather bomb passed over the country with 154 km (95 miles) winds blowing through Wellington.  Accompanied by torrential rain. It certainly was windy here and this morning when mummy went out to feed those pesky chicken she saw a big branch blown off a tree in the paddock.

Off We go.  We have heard mention of visitors coming this weekend. As loyal readers know Me and Nellie love having guests to stay.  More people to give Us the love and attention that We so richly deserve.   Not to mention more tasty treats coming our way.  Itai has yet to experience guests so he will be in for a pleasurable learning curve.

    Our only damage from the weather bomb that swept up the country today. Free firewood indeed.

  2. oh wow that is a wild summer… and it is amazing how mighty this wind can be…. that branch is huge… stay safe while this wind runs through your area &have a super time with the visitors…

  3. Good to know that the 3 of you will be receiving the love, attention, and treats from some fresh visitors. Maybe there will be a party with some yummy floor pies will drop all over the place. Paws crossed.

    Love and licks,

  4. We hope the wind is done downing branches!

    Just great? You get firewood in the summer? You probably get swim suits as winter presents .

  7. Good thing that branch didn’t hit anything or anybody!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley
