Rain and Lightning

September 27, 2011

Texas has had record temps this year, with the worst drought since the 1800s.  I think we hit 75 straight days of 100+ degree temps.  Well, on Monday we had rain! We had a huge thunder and lightning storm, so much that the power went out for about 3 hours. We lasted for awhile in the dark, however found our oil lamp and hung out in the kitchen. The puppy even did good and just played with her toys, the thunder didn’t even bother her.  She didn’t even hesitate when going outside to do her business… she ran right out into the rain!  I took a picture of the oil lamp and caught a lightning burst in the background… it was kinda cool 🙂

i got a puppy!!!!!

My friend Jenny came to visit this weekend!!!! I was so excited and had so much fun.  Jenny and I have been through everything since we joined the army. We both went to OBC together, we were in the same platoon, and then both stationed at Fort Hood. Anyways, she moved to Fort Carson, Colorado last march and I miss the HECK out of her. Even though I worked we got to spend alot of time together–lets just say I’m sleep deprived!  On Sunday, we were on our way to Barnes & Noble to go shopping and walked past a guy giving free puppies out. I have always wanted a black lab and just haven’t found one I liked out here. Well, we were standing there looking at the puppies and this one just kept looking at us. She was calm and quiet.  Jenny picked her up and that is the end of the story! We never made it to Barnes and Noble but instead went to Petsmart! lol.
