Feeling hot, hot hot!

In light of the recent weather crisis on the east coast, I am not going to complain about my weather. I am merely going to state some facts.

- It has been 100+ degrees every day for a week
- At night, it only cools off to about 80
- I haven’t been able to open the windows in my house
- I will probably faint when I get my electric bill
- Moxie has taken up boogie boarding and refuses to come inside

    Living in Maine I must admit that I would rather live through what I just went through than be where you are.  I was affected for only a day, with my power going out for about ten hours.  However since I’m one of the few of my family that lives in the city, and has power, I’ve been the fortunate host of several kids of siblings who come to my house to spend the day playing video games and surfing the net, since their families are still without power.  Now if this would of happened next week when all the kiddies would be in school….. anyway, five o’clock cannot come fast enough.

      ha,ha,ha,ha!  Love that pic!  ;-)
      We were lucky that Irene didn’t cause any damage here in our area………..didn’t even have to turn on the generator .  Many others did lose power and had lots of flooding but we were lucky!

    Smart dog! =) At least our weather cooled down after the storm and our electricity came back on right on time. The day after the storm it was hot but it’s been mild after that. Today it is beautiful and mild. The sun is shining and there is a nice breeze. No complaints.

    Good dog. No hurricane here yet. Hot and high humidity here. 100 degrees in days and 82 at night. Wish we had dry heat with a breeze.

    I love this picture of Moxie as I would never be able to get my  dog near the water.  I have a white Japanese Spitz and she is a pretty good dog with little barking.

    We have had over 100 degree days for over a month now  and are in the middle of a drought. My water bill was $480.00 last month! Scared of it and the electric bills that will show up in next couple of days! Moxie is so cute!

    Moxie is a real cutie Karen…I think he(or she) has the right idea , in light of your hot hot weather, to head for the pool!! We just had our visit w/ Hurricane Irene. So much damage. I feel so bad for those who lost homes and businesses to the rainfall flooding, up North especially. We were spared the wrath of Irene, but many others in our state of Ct. do not have electricity.Shorline homes were destroyed or nearly…just a big mess. The year has been full of weather extremes…I’m worried once again, about winter!!
    Karen…hop in that pool and cool off. Soon summer will be done!

      Hoping winter is mellow and that mother nature got her anger out during the summer. ;)

    Why ever would Moxie want to come in from her boogie board and pool!  She is a smart dog and perhaps is waiting for all of her humans to join her.

    Karen,
    Just curious — Could you tell us how your dog got the name of “Moxie”?

      @a770d4249575195bf1e4d9291ca8a9b1:disqus  I actually enlisted the help of bargain buddies! http://www.mybargainbuddy.com/karen/moxie/help-my-new-puppy-needs-a-name But in the end, decided to go with a name my daughter suggested because this little dog was so fiesty, Moxie suited her perfectly. 
      She was just under 1 1/2 lb. when I got her, yet she would lie in wait under the bed and sneak attack anyone that walked by. She thought she was a big dog from the day she was born. :)
