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.
