The walk that wasn't!

So I had some errands to run and figured the pups and I would have some time for a walk on the bike trail afterward, since the sun was shining, snow had melted and the temps were reasonably warm.

Pups: "Alright we are finally out of the car! Lets get to some serious sniffing here!" as they try to shake off their hoodies.

HoneyDew: "Did you hear that big boom? And look, that sky isdark. You knnoooowwww I am allergic to rain, right?!!"

Sampson: "Aw come'on you big sissy! I smell something great this way!"

Me: "Well I am not allergic to rain, but this doesn't look good, especially with that flash of lightening. Come on, I got your McDonald Chicken Nuggets in the car I was going to bribe treat you to anyway."

Honeydew: "Seeeeee I told you it was going to rain! AND I am not getting out of the car until it quits."

Radio: "Screeeech, Screeeeech, Screeeeech. The National Weather Service has issued a Tornado in effect for the following counties....

Picture a mad scramble and dash, pulling one unwilling stubborn  health consicious hound, and one dense as all get out easily excitable pup, a tangle of leashes, cell phone and purse, running for the door without tripping over the affore mentioned hounds or my own two left feet while dodging rain splotches and hail the size of baseballs peas!

This was flashing on Weatherbug on the computer right before the electric went off...
