Hurricane-Induced Insomnia

It's a little after 6am right now, and I've been wide awake since 4:00.

This is what I get for taking a nap on Sunday afternoon. Which I needed after Saturday night.

Thankfully, the worst of the hurricane for us was a power outage, no damage to the house. But the wind was loud enough that I kept waking up all night.

My biggest concern was our dog, Elvis, who spends most storms hiding under the bed, barking his poor little head off:

However, it seems that spending the better part of Saturday afternoon and evening playing with a couple of other pups, along with a dose or two of Richard's Organics Pet Calm makes for a very relaxed Elvis. He barked only once in the middle of the night, and didn't even spend any time under the bed!

And despite the horrendous weather, I actually had quite an enjoyable weekend. We spent a lot of time hanging out with friends and family, drinking beer, playing board games, and laughing at the antics of our ridiculous dogs.

I hope all you East Coast folks were as lucky as we were with your Hurricane Irene experience! How did you spend this stormy weekend?


  1. poor puppy! My dog Oliver does the same thing. Loud noises freak him out.

  2. Your "enjoyable weekend" sounds like you didn't have any hurricane at all!

    I'm glad you weathered the storms alright. All the way out in Pittsburgh, we weren't affected at all, which is a big change from when I used to live in Philly :)

  3. Oh this just looks so sweet! He is really looks so relaxed!!
