Longing for Winter

It's been so hot, even the moon turned red tonight. In this kind of weather, I get the equivalent of what others get in the winter: cabin fever.

The dogs are miserable. The flies are horrible, biting the tips of the dogs' ears. The dog yard looks like a desert with husky-hair tumbleweeds blowing about.

I bring them in and we are cooped up in our climate-controled haven. We'd like to stay inside until mid-September or whenever the temperature drops below 80 degrees.

Huskies flop on hardwood. They stretch lazily, putting paws over eyes, dreaming perhaps of next winter. I day dream of next winter too, longing for it like an old friend.

  1. You just need to move up by us in the rockies! The temp has not gone above 80 all summer :) The flies have been bad though - we have two kinds of insecticide on the dogs plus traps EVERYWHERE! They are under control but still very unpleasant. Nights are wonderful and we can see our breath about once a week :) Take care and give that crazy ACD a pat for me
