What are these things on the ground?

What are these things on the ground?

Last night I heard it. My person had music on but I still could hear it. A couple loud rumbles – my least favorite sound. I have trouble holding everything in when the storms come around, so when my person offered to take me outside I went for it.

She put my leash on and I drug her to the front door. I had to get out in a hurry. We went outside and I drug her close to my favorite front yard pine tree. Thunder rumbled and lightning flashed. The lightning reflected throughout the clouds, and it flashed and reflected again.

And then it happened. My person and I were being pelted. It didn’t feel like rain – we weren’t getting wet. Maybe it was hail. I don’t think so though. Hail this big would hurt when it hit. Oh, no. That juniper tree over there. That’s what it is. The wind is blowing and the tree is letting go. We’re being pelted with flying juniper berries. I think I discovered a new kind of weather.

    Sorry you got pelted Bongo! Personally I do not like being outside in the rain and would have been running back to the door as soon as it started.

      Believe me Rumpy, I ran back in the house as fast as I could.

    I don’t mind rain, but I hate thunder and I don’t think I would like being pelted by berries at all. You were brave to go out at all.

      I usually balk at the door when it’s thundering, but I guess I’ve been getting a little braver lately. I sure didn’t like those berries though.

    Wow! I have heard of fish and frogs dropping out of the sky but never Juniper berries! At the moment the grapes on the vines are ripening and some of them fall off and I gobble them up – delicious!

      Bassa, I wish we had grapes instead of juniper berries – or maybe fish or frogs – something good to eat anyway. Juniper berries aren’t good to eat – at least I don’t think so. The coyotes around here like to eat them.

      Thanks ferrierfelines. I told Bongo what you said about him and he’s thrilled.
