Pittsburgh was supposed to get some weather from Hurricane Sandy, as did much of the Northeast. We didn't get it, or at least not like we were supposed to.
Oh, we've gotten rain, and a lot of it, but none of the winds and flash flooding that had been predicted. I'm so thankful for that! (Though I feel terrible for those that DID get hit hard.) I think all of us feel a bit bad for complaining when so many lost everything to the storm... though if I can submit a teeny tiny complaint... I haven't seen sunshine in a couple of weeks. Bleah. The world is shrouded in gray. But at least I can look out my window in my safe warm house at the gray.
The rain that we have gotten has driven most of the leaves off of the trees... which makes me glad that Jeff and I got some good pictures when we took the dogs to the park before all of this began.
It was chilly that morning, and I think that both of us were wishing that we'd worn warmer coats. There was even frost on the ground!
If you're wondering what they're looking at, someone walked by up on the trail with a dog. They wanted so badly to go over and meet the new dog! (But I'm a big meanie pants and didn't let them.)
I think that the dogs are probably wishing for those sunny if cold mornings in the park, or at least our frequent walks around the neighborhood. But every day it's been soggy and raining great big cold droplets, and I've decided that the dogs would be just fine in the backyard.
And Maera snapped at one of the cats tonight, for invading her space.
All of this would go away if we can get a good walk in. I'm hoping tomorrow will be decent... I DID see the sun peak out briefly this afternoon (and when I say brief, I mean brief; maybe ten minutes.) But maybe that's a harbinger of better things to come. I can hope so, because I think that everyone has a case of cabin fever!
They get more snuggling when we stay in, and since the weather is turning colder, they think that's a good thing!
Charlotte, on the other hand, just wants for me to get the camera out of her face.
I hope that everyone is having a good weekend!
