Black and wet

No, I’m not talking about a dog’s nose (unfortunately).
Storm Dudley hit us this afternoon and the sky was black. It was chucking it down with rain and we could hardly see across the road.
The wind was pretty fierce too, and Hubby was anxious about his CB aerial, so donned the full yellow kit and braved the storm like Scott of the Antarctic.
‘I may be some time……….’ he said.
Watching out of the back window in case he got into trouble, he managed to disconnect the top part of the aerial and lay it down on the ground without that much difficulty, and when he got back indoors, it was only the yellows that were wet.
Looking out of the back window, we could see a thick band of black sky with orange and red behind it. The storm has literally gone over us and now passed out to sea.

This is such a contrast to this morning when it was beautifully sunny and warm, even for February.
We walked up into town as previously mentioned in my Today is………. post , but no kits were available at the one chemist and because they are sharing a pharmacist, the other outlet wouldn’t be open until 1pm. This was around 10am so we came home along the prom having several puppy fixes on the way and throwing balls for Tash and Lucifer who saw us and came running at full pelt. Great stuff.

We noticed a car down on the beach actually parked on the shoreline and wondered what was going on. It was from the Seal Sanctuary up the road and they were releasing a seal back into the sea. Wonderful. I hope it’s OK as the sea would be pretty rough just now.

Hubby’s Covid kit arrived this afternoon and was delivered by a very damp and soggy postie. Tomorrow we are having a field trip to enquire about renewing our passports. Hubby’s has already expired and mine does at the beginning of next year. Seems you need one of these to renew your driving licence.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    • We’ve had rain again this afternoon Keith, and Eunice is due to hit us either tomorrow afternoon or the weekend. Don’t know if we’ll be getting any snow with that one.
