I. Don't. Like. This.

And neither does The Boots.

Last night, I had to go to the storm shelter.

Yup. The sirens were going off, the news had a call-in report that a funnel cloud touched down less than a mile from my house (the newscasters seemed pretty skeptical, but I wasn't going to push it).

Also, they said, "If you are in a mobile home, get out and to a safe place immediately."

Needless to say, it was another rough night.

Ooh, yeah, and just to warn you, they give the warning to leave mobile homes A LOT around here. I imagine bringing a dog that is afraid of storms to the shelter has got to be fun!

And I think I must do the Beef Days 5k just for the t-shirt (especially as an ex-vegetarian!)

Poor you! Poor Boots!

Oy. Just read this. Yuck. Please keep safe.

On the positive side, I just realized that my nickname for my sister's skittish dog is Boots, like your aninmal. It's because she has little white feet. And I would chuckle to myself when I called her that. I thought I was so original. Oh well, another self-belief down the tubes...
