abby and tar enjoy the quiet

wind, wind and more wind

The third and fourth semi-trucks to tip over. so far.
77 mph right next door. 113 mph on top of one of our hills.
there is a school where the kids are stuck. too dangerous for buses to come get them.
wind still blowing.

so we NEED rain

wish we could get it without 60 mph winds.... here on the east side we have tons of blowing
dust which shuts down roads - those that don't have semi-trucks blocking them from blowing over.
this is Lake Washington.

one embarrassed dog

In WA state - firefighters having to rescue a cat AND a dog from a tree.

I don't think many people are upset about it, the new Starbucks cup. More fun and games with social media. But this made me laugh.
Original idea from Phil Plait's Astronomy blog
