Walkin' Wednesday 2010

With some watchin'
Mom took these last week
Two from inside the house
Two from outside
Just chillin' at my tree
Look what happened to my tree and my yard Monday morning
We had khwite the storm khome through ovFUR night
The day was a non-stop battle of weather systems. At one point, Mom khould tell the sun was trying to win and as she looked out ovFUR my hills she saw this khomplete rainbow!
She got a few shots of it that she'll inkhlude in my Sky Pikhs this Friday - which will be all pikhs from Monday. The rainbow's kholours were not very instense fur the sun was not furry strong but it was still enough to produce this!
Mom harvested several trash khans of stikhks - still more to go - she rekhlaimed some spouting that blew off but fur the most part we khame through okay. When we got out fur our walk late Monday afternoon, we saw some had lost a bit more than some limbs
This is on the next street
Khwite the mini-pond under the now exposed rootball. We also saw several houses that lost khwite a portion of their roof's shingles.

Due to the wind snapping some powerlines along Interstate 83, a portion of the road was khlosed fur about four hours so they khould get the live wires off the road. There was khwite a bit of flooding - with the potential fur more - along various sekhtions of The 'Susquehanna' River and its tributaries.

Here is a link to a slideshow posted by one of our lokhal television stations - viewers are able to submit their pikhtures - khwite a variety of nasty events - it makes us feel furry furtunate we did not experience anything more than we did!


It does inkhlude a special guest walker! We made sure to khapture this week's walk whilst Khousin Merdie was here!

Unkhle Paul appreciated all the greetings here (and on FB)!

I shared all of your theories about the trash redistribution incident with The Doggy Nanny. Since she and Fred are headed South today - returning in early/mid March - I've told her I'll protekht things from any nasty khritters that somehow manage to get in a sort through 'stuff'!

I'll see all of woo here tomorrow!

You're a very brave puppy to take care of the sitter so well. You're also a good sitter when you're by your tree!

Life With Dogs said...

A storm indeed by the looks of it.

I am sad when I see no snow in your yard. How crazy is that? :)

BeadedTail said...

That was quite a storm! Glad you are all okay.

We enjoyed walking with you and Merdie and seeing your floofy tail and Merdie's happy one! Hope Merdie can come visit again soon!

JacksDad said...

I'm glad that everyone is ok. You can always replace roofs - puppies is another matter!

Suka said...

hey Khyra,

Somewhere over the rainbow, there is snow...

I am glad you were not sitting under your tree when the big storm hit! That would have been furry scary! I love the second pic of you by your tree. The shadow of the tree branches look like witch's hands waiting to grab a critter for dinner!

What a fun walk with you and Merdie! Such good walkers with pretty furry tails!


Oreo said...

Teddy Bear said...

That was quite the storm! Glad you all kept safe!!

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

So good to see you sharing your walktime with Miss Merdie. We love how she just sort of swaggers along at her own pace while you do all you can to get things moving along.

Too bad about the big trees. The wind and heavy rain sure do wreak havoc.

Thanks for the floofy tail today too - it is looking quite floofed.

Woos, Phantom and Thunder

The Thundering Herd said...

Khyra? Act Cracker Dog on a walk? We think it was all a myth because she was so well behaved in the video.

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

wild weather everywhere! don't worry Kyra, there is plenty more snow to come!

Tama-Chan, Bibi-Chan, Gen-Chan, Vidock, Violette, Ollie said...

That looks like quite a storm!

Happy trails to the Dog Nanny!


Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Beautiful rainbow shot. We didn't get that kind of wind here. Glad there was no more damage than that.

Kapitein Haakje said...

Gus said...

Woo Hoo..we have a big "system" headed our way. It is due to come on Friday. They should start announcing closings and cancellations sometime early tomorrow. We are glad you all came through OK. Tell Doggy Nanny to drive carefully.


The Gang at LLB said...

What crazy weather! We were happy to see that your tree still looks good!


Sam said...

What a storm!

Glad you, your house and your yard made it through relatively okay.

CAn't wait to see more pics of the rainbow!

Golden Woofs! SUGAR said...

Woof! Woof! Happy Walkin Wednesday. Mmmm I see SUNSHINE ... Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Martha said...

Hi Khyra
Lovely to see Merdie enjoying the sunshine on your walk.
We were a bit confused with Walkin Wednesday being filmed on Saturday but we understand you have to take advantage of the weather.
We reckon the weather has gone mad!
We are sorry to read about your storm - they do so much damage.
Stay safe
love and kisses

The Furry Kids said...

Great Walkin' Wednesday! You guys looked like you were having a great walk. I don't know why your mom said you were a cracker dog on your walks. Sometimes walks just to that to you. Doesn't she get it? ;)

Your pal,

KB said...

Whenever I see a rainbow, I remember my Acadia, my beautiful soul-touching lab who died 6 years ago. We put a large boulder in the spot where the vet let her go. I was sitting on the boulder, wondering if I would ever see her again (wondering about the rainbow bridge idea), when a rainbow appeared, seemingly for no good reason (no storms in the area). I was convinced. She's watching over me, and I'll see her again. In fact, I bet that she even helped me find K, the sweet girl who healed my soul.

Beautiful post.

Khady Lynn said...

Wow, that looks more like a spring storm than a January storm! Glad you didn't have more damage, and that you are all safe.

I'm sure you will do a great job of keeping an eye on your mom while your doggie nanny is away!


Byron y Xinver said...

Angel Ginger Jasper said...

Wow, I'm glad I didn't hear about this any sooner. You guys are okay now, phew. I'm on my way to watch the video. Ta-ta for now ;)

Amy & the house of cats said...

Wow it looks like you had quite a storm - we are glad that you didn't really have much damage other then some downed branches.

Hey, Khyra, can you please convince the snow to come see you and stop visiting us for a while - we are all a bit tired of the white stuff!

Mochi and Bali said...

I'm glad the storm didn't do too much damage, but I wish it dropped some snow for you! Your yard looks a little too green for winter.

So glad to see Merdie on your WW! :)


Angel Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

The third picture of you is our favorite!!!

We didn't go look at the storm pictures, but it soundslike it was quite a humdinger! We are glad your home wasn't damaged and that you are safe!

I'm glad you guys are safe. We been having lots of rain in Las Vegas the last week-the left overs of the storms from California. I'm enjoying it, but people don't know how to drive here. Keep safe.

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

It is a shame all your snow has almost gone now, just a few little heaps around. Ours has been gone for a while, it was fun when it was here until it turned to nasty ice of course.

Thanks for sharing your walking video, it is always lovely to see you and cousin Merdie out together. :-)

Teddy Westlife said...

Glad no pup was harmed in the storms. And your mum too!

Where are the Doggy Nana and Fred going?

Britny said...

Molly the Airedale said...

Your rainbow picture is just beautiful!
It sounds like you and Merdie and your mom met people along today's walkie. Don't you ever bark or try to say hi to them, Khyra? Mom wishes that we could be more like you at times!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Unknown said...

Hi Miss Khyra and Merdieballs

I love walking with wooguys. Miss Khyra.. you should be on the local weather - they can post your floof to show viewers which the way the wind is blowing.

Busy Buttons said...

Wow - looks like you had some big storms! Glad it didn't knock your tree over. *hugs*

I think you should definitely continue your trash redistribution activities. *snickers*

Tweedles -- that's me said...

We are happy to know you are safe from mother nature.
We just never know what to expect- do we?
The rainbow was beautiful.
We have been having some rainbows too and mommy always wishes she had her camera.
Be careful when you go on your walkies with Merdie.
I send my love

The Oceanside Animals said...

I think I can see Oz over that rainbow!

Cliff and Olivia said...

Nasty weather! We've been having some of that here as well - a blizzard yesterday.
