Little Storm Chaser

After a day spent indoors because of the build-up crappy weather to Tropical Storm Sandy, Cubby was getting a little stir-crazy.

He wasn't the only one.

When A. went out around 6 p.m. to put the chickens away, Cubby begged and begged to go too.  So I thought, okay, we'll just go on the front porch where he can experience the awful wind and rain for himself.  Then he won't be so keen to be outside.

So we went on the front porch to watch the huge trees on our front lawn bend in the terrible wind and to get sprayed with the rain that wind was blowing onto the porch.  And Cubby spent the next ten minutes running back and forth on the front porch in wild excitement while keeping up the following commentary: "I like the rain!  It makes me happy!  I like the wind!  It's blowing my clothes!  This is FUN!!!!!"

Alrighty then.  Perhaps a hobby of storm chasing is in his future.

P.S.  For those of you who were wondering, we sustained no major damage here at Blackrock and only lost power for a few hours, starting around 8 p.m. last night.  There are a lot of people who were definitely not so lucky.

Glad to hear you were spared the brunt of the storm. It is incredible reading about NYC.

Good to hear y'all had minimal inconvenience. I'm with Cubby. Love before, during and after storms. If I'd been there you'd have had both Cubby and me running on the porch. Then, you could have gone inside where all sane people retreat during storms. I've great childhood memories of non-threatening Louisiana storms.

I was having flash backs to Jake Gylenhaal in The Day After Tomorrow watching footage of Manhattan.

SO glad you guys are doing alright...

I'm glad to hear Sandy didn't cause major damage at Blackrock. Cubby might, after all, become a storm chaser. A famous one, of course.
