    that - they are big enough to stomp you into the ground thing. Rocky The Cat is esconsed in the house. Tonight, he is in the big house 'coz he wants to be warm. But he is terrified of wind. He used to be content sleeping in the store. But a couple of years back we had a hurricane quality storm that started about 3am. At 8am, DH went down to the store and found Rocky screaming and clawing at the door. I remember watching DH carrying Rocky to the house in the rain and wind. He had his front paws wrapped around his neck and was totally terrified. The cat has never been the same about wind since. Last March, we had a big storm, the wind started about 3pm. I picked up Rocky and walked him to the big house. He literally wrapped his paws around my neck and started purring. Now we just know, get him in the house before it starts blowing. It will be interesting, watching his response tomorrow morning if it's blowing like they say it will. He loves being outdoors. But I'm willing to say that he'll take one look out the door and say never mind.

    •  heh - i woke up at 5:35 this am... this is (0+ / 0-)

      a MAJOR indication of weather coming in.

      i usually hit the hay about 2am to 4 am and don't wake up until about 10 - but today - eyes popped open and stayed.

      yep. storm.

      horses are the most gentle beings when treated well.  they will do anything to avoid stepping on people usually.  

      mine is a pocket pony - 1500 lbs of "in your pocket" - especially if you have treats!

      i am headed over to the barn soon to make sure everything goes okay with the wind.

      Is GlowNZ back yet?
