Wet, Windy and Not Summery!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss April, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret here!

Wot a day!

We had a look at Old Two Legs weather thingy whatsit this morning and saw we had some dark and wet looking clouds heading our way today!

The weather forecast on the TV showed we had some nasty wet winds heading down into North Kent!

What we didn't like was the forecaster telling us that the rest of the UK was all sunshine and balmy breezes!

We knew we were in trouble when OTL got the lead out and our rain coats. He didn't even get the ferrets out and in their travelling cage but rather he put them back in their beds!

Holly and I were not too happy about going out and it took OTL a while to get us into the car!

When we got to the car park it was bucketing down and we had to stay on our lead until we got right around the corner into our 'Pooing Grounds'!

The wind was howling and the rain was horizontal and from the north!

After I had 'Done my Thing' I wanted to go back to the car but OTL said we couldn't go back until Holly had finished her 'Business'!

So, all the time I was whispering to her 'come on, get it done and we can go home' but you know how it is, when someone is looking at you, you just can't go!

In the end Holly Dog managed it and as soon as OTL had filled the poo bag we were off back to the car at a fast trot!

We got a rub down with our towels and OTL had to drive home soaking wet!

That will teach him!

Lunchtime was no better, it was still raining but not so hard and OTL spotted a gap so off we went.

We had brought Fred and Wendy along with us and even they didn't hang about when OTL put them on the sandy beach. A quick sniff, a little dig and then it was a case of 'Two Fast Flying Ferrets' all the way back to the car!

As you would imagine, OTL left the camera at home 'cos it was just too wet to even think about taking it with us!

You know we got 30mm of rain today and the strongest wind gust was 44.2 km/h!

He gets a bit boring with his weather machine, as Holly says, 'Stick your nose out the door and you can tell if it's raining!'

Tomorrow it looks like rain here as well, so we are hoping that our rain coats get dry overnight!

Sorry there are no pictures, maybe tomorrow!

Bye for now!


Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss April, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret!
