After weeks of sunny but extremely dry weather, we finally had a chance of rain appear in our forecast. And sure enough, around sunset Sunday night clouds moved in and Isabella started pacing.

By about 3 a.m. I got one of those sudden migraines I sometimes get when weather fronts move through. It was one of those crushing ones that always ends with me vomiting. Within an hour I was leaning over the toilet vomiting my innards out with a terrified dog attached to my side. I'd push her away and she'd move right back in on me, even closer. Somehow she got her head over the toilet and the next thing I knew I'd vomited on her ear. So then I had to get her in the tub and wash the puke off her which made me sick all over again. As I moved back to the toilet, I was sternly telling her to stay in the tub, and thank ya jezzuz she listened to me. When I finally had nothing left in me to vomit, I quickly towel dried her head, cleaned the tub, washed my face and brushed my teeth. About that time Real Old Man got up to get ready for work and the first thing he said was "Why are you bathing Bella at this time in the morning?" I just gave him a look and said "Don't ask a fucking thing!". I gave Bella another pill and went to bed.
I got up a few hours later and it was still raining...
At noon it was still raining
Late afternoon it was still raining...
Early evening it was still raining
And it continued to rain
As I sat in the computer room tonight, Isabella took up her usual storm position in the hallway staring at the wall waiting for something awful to happen.
It's now midnight, 24 hours after from the beginning of the storm. The rain has stopped and all is well in Isabella's world again. After a devouring a bowl of food, a trip outside to potty, she crawled into her crate and is soundly asleep. She'll stay there until I go to bed. No matter how quiet I am, the minute I turn the computer off, she leaps up and beats me to the bedroom.
I think we're both ready for a quiet uneventful night, sound sleep and hopefully no one gets puked on...
