Thankful Thursday!


We got some awards last week from some new friends...we are so thankful for all our blogger pals.

First up, we received the Beautiful Blogger award from Rainbow at Purrs, Meows, etc.!  Rainbow is an all white kitty whose name reflects the fact that white reflects all the colors of the rainbow!  We think that is so cool.
Thank you Rainbow!
We think you are an exceptionally gorgeous kitty, and welcome to the Cat Blogosphere!

Then, we got the Thinking of You award from Texas, a Cat in New York!
Texas, we just bet you'll be thinking of us when you get that nip we mailed you, heh heh...that is when the pink spotted mousies finally go away!
Thank you for the award.

We are total rule-breakers when it comes to awards, so if you would like to grab it for yourselves, feel free!  In our opinion ya'll are Beautiful and we DO think about you, even if our Mommy is a lazy wench has to work and we can't comment as much as we want to.  Stupid lack of thumbs.

In other news, we had RECORD BREAKING rain here today!

You may have read Mommy's whining post on Sunday, that it's been terribly hot and humid here.  Kitties, she was not exaggerating, not one tiny bit.  Scouty thought maybe he was being stewed sans the pot, it's been so sticky.  It couldn't last forever, and today the clouds decided to let loose--we had 1.22" of rain in our back yard!  Mommy had to go for a hair cut at noon and where her hairdresser is had some of the heaviest accumulation; over 2.50" in under an hour.  It's the heaviest rain she's seen in eleven years, she said it was almost too scary to drive.  On the way home the intensity let up and there were soccer-ball sized rocks in the road that had been carried by the water out of the desert.

Here's some photos of the rain by our house:
The guys pouring concrete in the neo-park were caught off guard by the downpour (they must not watch the weather-guessers), they had to run around in the muck building berms to shunt the water into the street.

The rain water in the gutter rose to halfway up the apron of the driveway.

A quick shot (Mommy must be a witch--she was afraid the water would melt her) looking up the street.

This is a major intersection by our house, after the flooding.  Mommy snapped this while she was driving...or so she claims.  We think she's just skewed.

So that's the news for today...tomorrow, Mommy EATS CROW! 
 Don't miss it...

Happy Thursday!

  21. We hope getting the rain will help to cure the sticky wether for you.

  22. Have to say it is just the weirdest weather all over. Our part of Wales hasn’t even had summer to speak of …. just a couple of days of 21C a week or so ago!! Now it’s back down to 16.

    Eating crow is not recommended for lazy wenches!!

  23. weather guessers and the visual of your sweet Mom as a witch was just too funny.
    That is a lot of rain for the desert

  25. Congrats on the nice award gang! Hey, give it to Rainman, maybe he will be nice to you!

  26. So that's like, 100% humidity right?

    every pore in our little
    dessicated bodies is yearning for this to come over the mountains (and across the sahara desert) to us. Get yer fans out & start pushing it on will ya?

    Glad everyone is safe and alla kitties stayed in the catio all protected!

    Ms. Stella O'Houligan

  27. Holy cat! Look at all that rain. We are glad you're all safe and sound, dear pals.

  28. Concats on the two awards. As for the crow make sure Mom has some ketchup as they are pretty bland without flavors.

  29. Congrats on your awards!!

    We've heard that LV can get these types of rains. A friend of the mom's was there years ago and there were torrential downpours and the hotels on the strip flooded! We hope everything dries up soon.

  30. Concats on your awards.That was a lot of rain all in one go!! We have had nearly continual rain since the end of March. We were supposed to get a heatwave a few days ago. London got it. We got fog and drizzle!
    Your mom is going to eat a crow? Is she going to share with all of you?

  41. yikes! We saw the torrential rains that his our former home, Redlands...especially a place in the San Bernardino mountains called Forest Falls, that little stream was a raging river shoving boulders down from 6000 feet. Lots of flooding there and down in the Palm Springs guys stay close to home, flash floods not fun. paw pats, Savannah

  42. Those rocks looks scary! Does that happen often? Makes for hard driving, for sure!


Oh Boy...this is gonna be GREAT!
