Ha! Never mess with Mother Nature! That flash of light that I saw out of the corner of my eye at 4:30 a.m. turned out to be an approaching thunderstorm! BOOM! Then I heard the thunder...then...I wondered why everything out back was WET! DUH! By 6:30 a.m., we were in the middle of a sound and light show! Well, at least all the plants are getting a nice drink of rain water. My gray cat has disappeared, however, and I am worried about him. I didn't see him yesterday afternoon when I got home from school, or last night, or this morning. He's an older neutered male cat that was given to our daughter when one of her students' families moved to a house where they couldn't have pets. OF COURSE, she immediately brought him over to us. We fell in love with "Mr. Gray". He is a very docile and loving cat who NEVER leaves the yard. I am worried because (1) sometimes coyotes DO come into our neighborhood; (2) sometimes animal control DOES pick up cats in our neighborhood; (3) sometimes our neighbors DO pick up our cats and "keep" them. I went out calling him between raindrops. No Mr. Gray. Not even a peep. I am hoping he is holed up somewhere. Needless to say, I am now stuck at home for the day, so I'll update all my blogs and my playlists and do the dishes!
