This weekend we are expecting severe storms in the form of thunder and lightning, crackling and sparking in the night skies. How exciting! But this is also a time to consider your pets. While I personally like to watch a lightning storm, my dog does not. It scares the living daylights out of him. He runs and tries to stuff his one-hundred pound body under my bed. It’s an exercise in futility. So in deference to my dog Flumpy, I have to remember to keep a closet door open for him to hide in, otherwise he may just run of the house into the storm and meet another county employee to save him, like last year. Poor Flumpy.
