Thunder and Lightning....


I experienced my very first thunderstorm last night.

Floyd and I were curled up in our beds and my human was sitting next to us reading blogs and other things at her computer desk.

Notice that Floyd has stolen my Dougall sized bed...
It is a tight fit!

We had been getting storm warnings for a few days, but none of them had eventuated, but just out of curiosity she decided to check the weather online and found this radar image and storm warning.



Luckily we live on the eastern side of the map, so we didn’t get any damaging hail or anything...
But, it was still LOUD and scary! Some of the lightning was so bright it light up the sky like the middle of the day!

When the first clap of thunder struck I jumped out of my bed and ran for cover under her feet!



I sat there on edge for a while, until things calmed down a little. Then I decided to keep watch from the middle of the room.



I didn’t get much sleep at all, and she didn’t either because she was nice enough to stay up and keep me company (Floyd slept through the whole thing).

So, in the morning she let us snuggle with her, on her big comfy bed.

  1. It is what you're used to. Every summer we get a lot of thunder. Sometimes there's lightening with it and sometimes there's precipitation. It is so often at twilight that we don't get worked up about it. I wonder what the rabbits think about it.

  3. Dougall, I am so glad you are safe, I am very scared of thunder storms. I get so nervous and I go and hide in our bathtub. I can't believe Floyd slept through it. I think you did a very good job of protecting your family and I am glad its over for now.

    1. Thanks Molly!

      We had a pretty big sleep in. The human kept complaining that Floyd was a bed hog... Every time he move he pushed her closer to the edge of the bed!! BOL!

  6. Dougall, you are learning, a Scottie is in control at all times, making the peep take special care of you.

    1. I did a little bit of barking, but when it was really loud I was too frightened to even try a little yip... :/

  12. Hi Dougall!
    Yep, you made it throught your first thunderstorm! You didn't get too scared and even kept watch from the middle of the room for a while. That is some Scottie courage, if you ask us.

    PS: Floyd stealing your bed is hilarious! Don't worry, he won't be able to fit soon enough. Thought he might try, like our silly Scribble did, BOL!
