And yesterday the power was back on, and off, and on, and….. But yes, later in the afternoon, we seemed to be sort of back in business at headquarters. We cleaned up debris, opened hurricane shutters, and tried to get our act together. Ms. Zulu’s and I are good at supervising so that is what we did most of the day. We especially looked for squirrels because they
steal enjoy the nuts on the hickory tree that fell down.
We are not supposed to chase squirrels but it’s hard to resist these guys. My excuse is that I could be a Treeing Tennessee Brindle. Thanks Amy for pointing out the breed. A DNA test didn’t mention this breed but I sure look like one!
I’m dead tired after all that hurricane stuff. So this Brindle is going to take a well-deserved nap with Bunny and Crab.

As was predicted, the cone of terror arrived last night. Irma was quite thirsty; complete rivers and bays got sucked dry by her. My big sis and I tried our best to slow down the monster. Irma approached us in a counterclockwise motion. So I ran in clockwise circles with Mach 2+ speed to slow her down. Ms. Zulu cheered me on. Then she practiced Zuluism pretty much all day and into the night. This always helps to calm down our universe.
At night we decided to sleep together in Ms. Zulu’s favorite spot. It’s the safest spot in the house. Headquarters pretty much feels like a fortress, it is completely locked down with hurricane shutters closed. Trees did come down around us but so far nothing got damaged where we are. I tried to warn the humans when I heard one fall but as usual, they failed to hear anything.
Inspecting the area in the morning
Sniff this out
We lost power just after midnight and are now using a generator intermittently. Everyone is advised to stay inside today. I knew all would be OK for us as soon as I could do my business outside without getting my behind blown away and breakfast with drinks were served right on time. We hope that everyone is safe and remains to do so.
Over and out,

We are preparing for Hurricane Irma so we will be AWOL for a bit. Irma must be Harvey’s sister because she looks very mean. We are keeping all our digits crossed that she will lessen her temper. Maybe we all need to spray some lavender spray in her direction. It seems to help everyone when I’m on my Dogtor missions. I will also throw some of my reversed Reiki in the mix. In the meantime enjoy Belén Soto’s sculptures of me and Ms. Zulu.
