Wordy Wednesday


Nah, it's not THAT cold out here.  Can Misty please come out to play with me?

Nah, it's double digits today for the first time in days.  I am loving it out here.

Why am I always out here alone???  Yeah, yeah, yeah - Mom wants to be super careful.  She keeps saying SOON we can all be out here together.  OK, Mom - define SOON!!!

Now for a serious moment - we all need to cross our paws for the great state of Texas.  They are having lots and lots of serious problems there because of the storm and the cold.

Our human brother and family live near Dallas and are experiencing a very different life these days.  They have been hit by ice, snow, cold, and more.  Their home currently has frozen pipes affecting just about every faucet in the house.  In addition, their city is on a boil order for the water.  Last night the city ran out of water, and so they barely had a drip.  Trying to boil enough water for the essentials has been their prime goal.  And on top of everything else, they are dealing with those annoying rolling power outages that we too have had to endure.  They also have a swimming pool that is totally frozen. They had been chopping the ice but have given up.  They probably won't know the extent of the damage until it is much warmer.  A plumber came and told them there wasn't much they could do about the pipes except wait for warmer temps.  Thankfully we think that will happen by the weekend.

Their situation is bad, but there are many more people who have it much worse.  Please keep them all in your thoughts and prayers.  

Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber

Let's join the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop sponsored by Comedy Plus.


  1. Woos and Momster I am so sorry about your Human brudder and family. It is just horrible all the trickle effect from this storm especially where they are not at all prepared for this. I hope and pray the pipes are ok when the start to thaw and there is not damage.

    Now let me just say is very very wise to not let you out romping. A friend of mind just told me her sisters' dog had ACL surgery 2 or 3 weeks ago. The took him out to potty he slipped on the ice making a mess of the surgical area. I know Misty's isn't new surgery but this ice is not to
    paw friendly.
    Hugs Cecilia

  2. Warmer is better and we're praying for all those affected by this horrible cold.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. Scritches all around and my best to your mom. ♥

  3. I have seen on our news about the extreme weather in the US, particularly Texas. I hope it soon lets up ad gets back to more normal conditions.
    At least you woos have nice warm coats for going outdoors.

  4. We have been keeping TX and LA and so many others in our thoughts and prayers. What we have been seeing and hearing on the news is just heartbreaking.

  5. Looking good guys! We are sure the 3 of you will have a great romp soon! Cinnamon is so looking forward to playing with Lil Grrl!
    Texas has sure been hit hard. A friend of mine is moving and he planned to spend a week at his son's house in Austin to ensure it is tip top shape for a new tenant moving in at the end of the month. My friend was telling me how bad the cold and snow is there. Besides the awful roads, lack of food and water and rolling blackouts, he is sure the pool and the house plumbing will need work after this freeze. We have been praying for all of those affected by this horrible weather.

  6. We have been reading about the arctic weather in the southern states and feel bad for them. We hope it warms up soon.

    We hope you can all play together again very soon!


  7. Fingers crossed for them. It does look as if it will start warming up, but it will leave a mess.

    Here we’re supposed to have enough emergency food and water for three days, but it’s in case we have to shelter in place from a wild fire. It does look as if more frequent emergencies will be a part of our future. :(

    The climate really is packing a punch everywhere... it must be especially hard for those states for whom such weather is so rare. POTP to all affected. Meanwhile, don't you look in your element you sibes?!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  9. We would love to snuggle with you in the snow. We are sure you are super warm. We are sorry about your brother. Prayers for Texas.

  10. I'm glad you sweeties are having fun out there! We're all sending prayers to your human Brother and pray that all will be better for them really soon.

  11. You all look like you're enjoying the snow. We have our paws crossed for all our friends in Texas. They sure are in a rough position right now.

  12. I sure am glad that you Sibes love the cold! And, soon will be soon, Misty! We love you!

    I sure hope that your human brother and family can get back to normal soon. It's crazy.

  14. So great that you Sibes have some proper winter weather, but not so great for all those poor folk in Texas who aren't so well equipped for the Arctic blast.

  15. this is soooo your time... enjoy it!!!! we send hope to da peeps and pets in TX...and we cross our paws...

  16. Oh I know you all LOVE LOVE LOVE this snow but you're right - some areas of the country like Texas are in big trouble because of the weather. We pray for them and all the animals who are on their own trying to survive the weather too. Scary times.

    Hugs, Teddy

  17. Thoughts and prayers for your Dallas family. Having family in the Austin and Houston areas, I know how bad it is down there and hope things improve quickly. The news is full of heartbreaking images of people bundled up in long lines waiting to get propane or food. It's just terrible. Stay safe and warm.

  18. Thank you very much for your kind thoughts to Texas. We were wondering how your Texas family was doing! We never lost power here, but Auntie and all her pups came to stay with us for three days because they lost power. Momma is checking a lot now that things are melting to see if we have any burst pipes.

  19. Yes the sibes LOVE the cold, but those poor folks in Texas! They are not used to it or ready for it. Hope your family is doing better and doesn't have too much damage.


Thanks for wooing at us. We love your comments!
