Daily Pics #221.

Good morning on this very cloudy, but warm morning! The forecast is calling for severe thunderstorms for us this morning and right now there is thunder in the distance. Poor Muffin, she just got up to her favorite window when the thunder started. And she departed. She is now under the bed. A few raindrops have begun falling. There was a very weird color in the sky this morning before the clouds took over completely. It produced an eerie glow everywhere. The birds are acting strange too. Only Sir George and Lady Pearl came for food this morning, and they ate and left very quickly. The smaller birds have not shown up. Jasper was here though, but only briefly. The chipmunks have been acting normal though. Hmm, I think Sir Charles might have arrived, must go check.

I like the designs on this rock. The high water mark on the rock is where the water level was at last fall, over 8 feet above the current level.

Yes indeed, he was here so I gave him breakfast and he too disappeared fast. Still no small birds which is very unusual, although I can hear a white throated sparrow chirping back among the bushes somewhere. The raindrops and distant thunder have stopped, but Muffin has decided to stay under the bed just in case. She figures there is no point taking chances. But animals are able to sense a storm a long ways off, humans can’t do that. So there could be a storm somewhere in the area which is affecting her. I’m late again today. Sometimes I wonder if I’ll get back to my normal routine. Maybe I’ll just have to start a new routine. Not an easy thing to do sometimes. Oh well.

Today for our photos we have 3 different pics from the river, such a beautiful and relaxing place. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

  2. Nice relaxing place 😍✨ Hi Steve, How are you πŸ˜‡? And I would deny a point that human cannot sense what’s coming. Human can Sense long before any other animals, problem is we are far far far away from nature now. I know kids that doesn’t know how to walk in sand with bare foot, And there was a research that says human have a sense like spiders that can sense from any kind of dangerous situation πŸ˜‰πŸ§ Have a wonderful day Steve βœ¨πŸ€—

    • Hi Simon! Well, I have never met anyone that could sense a storm coming long before it gets here, but maybe there is some. All the research I have read says that animals, especially dogs and cats can sense storms and danger long before humans can. Muffin once knew a storm was coming before there was any clouds. It was an hour later before clouds showed up and another hour before I heard any distant thunder. But Muffin knew and hid. It turned out to be a very bad storm too. I doubt any people could do that! So I’ll stick with the animal senses over mine any day.😸😽 Enjoy your day Simon!😁🌞 Have you made it to your destination yet?πŸ€”

    • Birds just hide in trees, chipmunks and squirrels up this way live underground normally, though squirrels will sometimes find other sheltered spots to live. Ducks, loons, gulls, that live on the water just take their chances or will go onto shore to stand under a tree if it’s a real bad storm.
      That river is a very peaceful place.

  5. We’ve had some ugly thunderstorms, lately. Callie is under the bed before the lightning flashes and thunderclaps so I agree, animals sense storms before humans. With that said, animals would probably be good weather forecasters. β›ˆ πŸŒ©βš‘οΈπŸ™€
