    Mr.B does not look happy at being woken up!

    She’s so gorgeous! A perfect antidote to Mr. Fuckface.

    We had hell of storms here last night. Could-turn-into-a-tornado-any-second conditions came on three or four times through the evening. It was hair-raising. Then after it all calmed down and I was finally able to doze off, my doggeh left my room and went out into the livingroom to loudly retch and throw up some undigestible nugget plus grass in the corner. I checked on him and went back to bed and then my own little nasty beast woke me up when she decided to noisily sharpen her claws yet again on the pine woodwork around the front door closet, and I had to launch out of bed after her and chase her off.

    Today I need lots of coffee. Is our coffee-maker working yet, Prole?

    The storms went to Québec after here. Did they hit where you are, SQ? They would have hit you even later in the night than they did us. You okay?

    SQ, come to think of it maybe that’s why you were online at 4 a.m. ET! After it passed?

    No…only a light shower here, but humid.

    SQ – No, she doesn’t like the flash going off in her face while she’s napping. Too bad! It’s her own fault for being so cute!

    orange – She is lovely, isn’t she? She cutes me right out.

    Hey, you got some of that tornado yesterday? Wowee, it looked scary — roofs being torn off and everything up in Vaughn.

    SQ – Lucky you. Really. It was scary here.

    JJ – A tornado did not form where I am, in eastern Ontario, but the conditions became ripe for it about four times during the intense and stormy evening. The air was too warm, especially for after dark. The storm system was volatile. We’d get eerie calm, and then we’d hear an almost steady rumble of thunder. I mean almost non-stop rumbling for many minutes at a time. We’d see lightning both north and south of us, sometimes flashes that lit up the side of the house they were on, and sometimes bolts. We’d get abrupt dumps of rain, and moments where so much came down at once I understood the expression “came down in buckets-full.” Then, almost as abruptly, it would stop. A breeze would start up that was cool and a relief to feel. It would go deadly calm again and the air would be hot. Then the wind would start blowing steadily through the trees. I can’t remember the order of it all, but it was weird, and the whole thing kept happening over and over again. My dog and cat acted in unusual ways. Starting from before the storm system arrived, the dog caught my eye meaningfully and lowered his head and circled here and there in the house. He appeared to be looking for a place to go to ground but was not comfortable anywhere. He kept catching my eye and telling me there was reason to be concerned. He is not a dog who normally reacts much toward storms. Around the same time he became concerned, the cats suddenly slunk through the house and hid. Their behaviour and the weirdly warm and deadly still air worried me. And then it was over!

    Lots of reports coming in on local radio and through Ontario CBC coverage today as people come forward with stories of storm damage in various regions.

    Report just now on CBC that at least 600 hundred houses were damaged in Vaughn. 200 houses were damaged so badly the mayor of Vaughn is saying they’ll have to be torn down. A lot of people in shock over there; I can hear it in their voices as they’re interviewed. Lots of emergency measures being set up. Maple, Markham and Toronto are offering cleanup crews.

    Is it my imagination, or did you catch her in the middle of a “Quit disturbing my sleep!” meow?

    He appeared to be looking for a place to go to ground but was not comfortable anywhere.

    That’s the tip-off that something bad is coming. All of my dogs have done the same thing, with a little quiet, worried whining as they’re walking around.

    Re the storm: I saw some pics of the damage – wow 😯 You don’t usually get that kind of weather during the summer in T.O. I can see why people would be traumatized. Roofs flying off?!!? Yikes. Hard to believe that many houses were trashed beyond repair,that’s terrible.

    Well, stay safe.

    JAB – It’s not your imagination — she was napping, and the flash woke her up.

  11. 11 Dr. Prole Saturday, August 22, 2009 at 8:44 pm

    Yikes, mouthyorange! I’m glad you and your critters are ok.

    Thanks for the good wishes, you guys. Yeah, it was pretty alarming. I kept going to the window or door to try to see what the formation of the clouds in the night sky looked like whenever the lightning lit them up, or to try to hear through the deafening sounds of the rain pouring down and the gusts of wind blowing through the trees whether there was also the roar of a tornado on its way. I don’t think I’ve been that scared in a storm for a long time.

    Then the next morning some of us get to go on almost as though nothing happened, while others have to deal with the fact that they lost their homes.

    Ah, Mr. Blue 🙂 I had to scroll back quite a few pages to get a glimpse of my l’il buddy.

  14. 14 JJ Monday, October 12, 2009 at 7:49 pm

    Beijing – Hint hint, eh? I’ll see what I can do as soon as my batteries are charged up 😛


Wait. What?
