It's Raining

Well here again it's raining and there have been mudslides and flooding where we are and in Teresopolis too. Five people have died so far and more rain is expected. Mom was very scared she thought it was going to be like the last disaster. We had all day without electricity. Mom had to put Sol in the half made dog house as she was afraid the lightning would strike the metal cage she is stil living in because she hasn't got a kennel so far. The microwave blew up at 2am in the morning as a bolt of lightning struck near by. It was a very severe storm and apparently one months rainfall fell in just twenty four hours. Mom panicked here as the water level rose very quicky. Our exercise compound statrted filling with water and became a swimming pool. By nightfall everything was covered in several inches of water.


Here is Sol sheltering temporarily in the half made house. She was warm and dry here.


 The rain was relentless and the day after we still have a swamp here.


The kennels are still full of rain water.



Here some other photos taken before the storm got going. First Joey in pink.


Joey again because mom thinks he is handsome!


Now Joey and Pebbles.


The handsome Pluto next.


Another shot of the garden as it began to fill with water.

It's very muddy here right now. A hillside collapsed nearby and the lightning blew a hole in a house nearby. Mom amd Dad were lucky that they just lost the microwave. We will all be eating cold rice now. Have a Happy Easter everyone. Here it passed by with deep thought and rain.

Oh my gosh I get so worried when you get rain. I know how horrible it was the last time. Saying Easter prayers for you.
