Here I am again, back at the doors to the outside patio, just like I was yesterday. But today is different because my human has gone outside to check out the wreckage. What wreckage, you ask? Well, if you do not live in California or the Southwest U.S., you may not have heard about the massive windstorm we had! It was scary! I was scared because it was loud and flying things kept banging on the roof and the power lines were arcing. My human was scared there was going to be an electrical surge and it would kill her MacBook Pro… so she unplugged it and used it wirelessly. Then our electricity went out completely near midnight and did not come back on until the middle of the afternoon the next day.
Actually it wasn’t too bad here, just a lot of branches all over the place and up and down the streets of our neighborhood. Other nearby neighborhoods weren’t so lucky — big trees fell and smashed parked cars and buildings and some places are still without electricity. My human doesn’t remember there being a windstorm this big in years.
But ick! The spa out back turned into a swamp. My human’s boyfriend cleared some of it out later on, but there is more work to do.
It’s all just another reason I am glad I am an indoor-only kitty!
Oh yeah, and my nip plant(s) survived all the wind and did not blow away!
