Thanks on Friday

It was a wild, wet, windy, scary, and noisy night here in OP. But we are all fine and escaped the wrath of Mother Nature with no damages done. Today we want to thank all of you who wrote to us with concerns for our safety. It is so wonderful to know that we have so many loving friends out there. Thank you very much from all of us for thinking about us.

Here we all were last night checking out our kingdom. We all knew something was up and were happy to be safe inside.

Phantom spent most of the day doing this - safe in his cave by choice.

Ciara took refuge by staying close to her best friend. Of course, Thunder didn't understand what all the hullaballoo was - storms don't bother him at all - must have something to do with the name:)

This morning it is still raining but all is well. We send thanks to all for your concern and our thoughts are with all those affected by yesterday's storms and those in their path today. Stay safe.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

I'm glad all is well with the OP Pack! Tis the season?

We had 55(plus)mph winds, all day, a couple days ago. I kept waiting for something (my truck?)to blow in uninvited. Stumpy spent most of the day under my desk and in her kennel.

jen said...

Glad to hear that everyone is safe and sound! I think we are suppose to get some storms tomorrow, but none of the dogs get affected by them, just me:)

Pedro said...

Whew! Glad to hear you didn't blow away! I'm with Thunder - storms don't bother me either. Nice green grass you've got there! Ours is just starting to think about changing from brown to green some time in the near future, maybe...


Deborah said...

Yikes, I'm glad your all OK. I saw the big storms in the midwest on the news this morning. It looked horrible.
Have a nice weekend.

Samantha said...

THANK you for the update - the moment we heard about this storm, we thought about you all. Phantom - you are just adorable - well... you all are, looking out that window!!! Great photos - stay dry!
Hugs xoxoxo

P.S. Pawsome Thanks for your kind words about my Sis' passing.

Mrs. JP said...

So glad that you all are safe. We're getting that system through Tennessee today. We'll hunker down and God will protect us. Scrappy and Violet are in charge of barking at the lightening. The kennels are open so that they have access to their caves as well.
Have a wonderful weekend.

♥I am Holly♥ said...

We are so glad you are okay and safe from the storm. Love the pictures very much. We have a bad one headed this way this evening and all day tomorrow...wonder if it's the same one or we are getting a different bad storm from another area? We hate storms very much. Glad everyone is safe! Lots of love, Holly and mom

Cyber-sibes said...

Furry glad woo were all safe inside. Whew, storms can be so destructive! We had really high winds & rain too, which has thankfully moved out.

Princess Jasmine said...

You are all so beautifully photogenic. Stay indoors and snuggle up safe :)x

houndstooth said...

It's windy and rainy here, and they're promising storms, but we'll be safe snoozing away in our little house!

I'm glad you're all okay and have each other to pass the time with during the storms!


Amber DaWeenie said...

OMD...I jus readed da news bout all dat bad wedder. You must tink I lives under a rock or sometin! I is so glad dat all of you's are OK. You all is lookin' good! Phantom has da right idea of where to be durin' a storm!

Anna the GSD said...

We're supposed to have your storms here today! I hope we don't have to do the tornado drill again...being locked up with Alley is worse than the storm! Maybe I need a stud like TD! :)

Channon said...

Glad to hear you're safe.

Photos of the three of you always make me smile!

Thor said...

We're glad that you all are ok!
Have a great weekend!

Thor and Jack

Sally said...

Glad to hear you all okay.
Happy weekend.

Nice woooh

Santa, Minnie and Christmas said...

Glad that you are all safe. Like how Phantom keep safe in his cave.

TwoSpecialWires said...

We're glad all is well. Enjoy the calm between the storms. We know the area well enough to know there will be more. Hopefully, though, not for a long long time.

Jake and Fergs

Sue said...

It was sure windy, noisy and rainy here too. I had to get up twice during the night with Samba and we both got soaked. No damage here, but it's dark and looks like more rain is on the way.

Reilly / Bree said...

It was bad weather here in Arkansas last night too. Lots of rain, thunder and lightening. Thankfully me and "IT" just slept on right through it.

Oh - you asked what the "IT" is - he is a male, 12 months old, wired hair dachshund and "IT's" real name is Jackson or "Troubles" as mom calls "IT" . Me, I will continue to call "IT" - "IT" !

Furkidsmom said...

We're glad you are all safe! Dad says he remembers going into the basement many nights when he was just a pup. He grew up in Kansas City.

Amber-Mae said...

Glad to know that Mother Nature did not harm you guys. BTW, you have a very lovely living room!

Jake of Florida said...

Those storms are something else! We're glad you all are safe.

We get all scared when hurricane season is on us -- June-November -- but we think the rest of the country often has a nasty time all year round, what with tornados, floods, heavy winds, rain. So come on down!!!

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Snowie Baby said...

im glad all is well. and i love photos of them! just so sweet and nice..
stay warm and fuzzy in the house!

Mr. Pip said...

Thank goodness you are all OK. Poor Phantom, I know he hates storms! Hope it wasn't too hard on him.

Your pal, Pip

Asta said...

I'm so vewy glad you awe all OK.
That cave of Phantom's looks cozy and safe. I hope he didn't feel too scawed . Ciawa is a clevew giwl to stick close to bwave Thundew.
I feel tewwibull fow all the hoomans and fuwwkids in the paf of awful weathews

smoochie kisses

BeadedTail said...

We're glad all of you are okay in OP! When we see the storms in KS we call our Grandpa and he knows to give us the report not only for his area but yours too. Hugs to Phantom! Mommy knows just how he feels during the storms!

Team Beaglebratz said...

Well my work computer screwed up and lost my comment so will try again - knew I should have copied it BEFORE I sent it.

Anyway, so glad to read that you all are safe. I got really concerned after it left us and headed your way cause it looked like it was gathering steam.

Phantom is a good boy - he knows where the safe place to be. Your Thunder sort of reminds me of Shiloh - just sleeping away only to be wakened by Shasta who instigates a wild run around the livingroom - barking towards the door and windows when it thunders loudly - are they trying to scare the thunder-boomers away? Shasta would be like Ciara - wanting to cuddle with her older brother for safety and comfort.

Sam said...

I'm glad you're all OK. They seem to be predicting a crazy storm season - be careful out there!

rottrover said...

So glad all is well with the Woos :-)

We're really glad you're OK, and we just love that first photo!

We didn't knows ya'll was safe until dis morning but we was SOOOOOOOO relieved!
It just boggles my brains dat Phantom goes in his cave on his own free will.
But, I understand it is a safe haven fur alot of dogs which is a good thing.
So glad ya'll is okays.


Ginger Jasper said...

Lucille, the Great Dane from Italy said...

It must have been realy scary!!!
Glad to know the worst has passed!!!
Rain is not so bad at times is it, when you know how worse things can be... :)!!!
Ciao Lucille

Oh, I am SO very happy to know you all are safe. We hardly ever have thunderstorms here but I think the big ones would prolly be pretty skeery. My mom said that growing up in Oak-luh-home-ah, she learned that what you do when a tornado siren goes off is to go out and stand on your porch and look for it up in the sky. Is that what you do in OP, too?

Wiggles & Wags,

Winnie said...

So glad that you are all OK. It's awful to hear that you're still getting bad weather over there. It's quite calm here in England.

Lots of love to you all


scotsmad said...

We're happy you are all safe and sound. sounds like good sleeping weather....if you can sleep.

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

Snake flipping sounds like a great sport.....but we're not allowed. If you see a snake in Oz you can be 98% sure it's poisonous.

soggibottom said...

Oh... not good..
Good to see you all safe. Guys... you can't stop the world. No matter how many times you want to get off.
Just think of how good the water is for the garden. xxxxxx
lots and lots of luv AMIE SOTO BLOSSOM X

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Glad to hear you all are safe - we get a taste of that nasty weather tomorrow. Thanks for sending it. ;)

Benny and Lily said...

KB said...

I was worrying about you. I'm so glad that you're OK, if a little scared.

Maybe you should name all your future dogs after storms: Lightning, Rain, Stormy, Boomer... the list goes on!

I hope that sweet Phantom is feeling better.

Stella said...

I have been thinking more about the bad flooding in North Dakota (Fargo is 50 Miles west of us) and not paying attention to the weather forecast. Sorry you got a bad one but glad all is well. Tonight we are getting a SNOW STORM! Yes! We have about 4" with it still coming down. Parts of ND got 10-14" today. What IS this crazy weather!

Lets hope for a peaceful summer, that is if it ever arrives.

Cheers and Hugs,

Jo and Stella

the_Dogfather said...

Paws crossed and hope the bad weather will go away. We are experiencing storms here too, mommy's hoping all doggies get to stay indoors and keep warm. Snuggle time!! ;)

Oh! Sorry I'm so late and didn't realise you guys were having such scary weather!! But I'm so glad to hear that everyone is safe. Wow, must have been something sitting through it!! My human, Hsin-Yi, actually loves storms - she thinks they are so romantic and exciting!

FiveSibesMom said...
