Storm Warning Friday

Mike says:
It's still nice outside this morning so far.  Tonight we will get a visit from Tropical Storm Andrea.  So by tomorrow morning we should be getting a 'wind and rain event', which means I will plan a nap event, since bird TV will be off.

Moe says:

I think I will rest here a while and then go on a food hunt.

Cookie says:
I lay claim to the office/music room, it's cozy and warm in here and I am willing to share this space with my humans.

Mindy says:
I have some unsettling news, a different kind of 'storm'.  We live near a large harbour and this one has several lighthouses.  I was thinking that years ago, perhaps some of my ancestors lived in ones like this with the light keepers.  Sadly, some of these lighthouses are in jeopardy.

This one is on George's Island in Halifax Harbour, you can see it in this photo that our mombean took.  It is maintained by our federal government, but probably not for much longer.

Oh stay safe from that storm!

Poppy said...

I hope you stay warm and dry. :)


Sparkle said...

It sounds like you kitties are well-prepared for the storm! Too bad the same can't be said for the lighthouses and that other "storm" you mentioned.

Christiane said...

I hope the storm causes no major damage, and you all stay safe.

Hi furcousins!! We will be having a snooze event this weekend too ;)
We hope that storm moves quickly so we can get on the porch and see Bird TV
We are sad about the lighthouses too.

Oh nooooooo, that's so sad that the light houses may have to go. It's not every area of our country that has one of those either.

I was chatting with my mom last night (she's in Fairview) and she said Andrea was headed to Halifax. I hope the storm blows offshore instead! :-)

Happy weekend from the boys, no matter what the weather.

Isn't it amazing, yesterday we had Andrea come through our area. it was lots and lots of rain off and on all day. But, today as usual with these things it's sunshine and very humid. We hope you just get a bit of rain and Andrea passes quickly.
