Yesterday afternoon, we had a HUGE storm--thunder, lightning, wind and buckets of rain.
Our back room flooded.

 The front yard looked like a rice paddy.
 This morning, there were a few puddles, but most of the water was gone.
 And it was sunny again.
We were enjoying the river
 when kayaks, canoes.
Dui telling these people off....loudly.
 And swimmers arrived. 
 We told them just whose beach it is,

 but they didn't listen!

They had a short break and then continued  their 74-km swim 
to the next town.
And we had the beach all to ourselves again! 

Oh, all you snow-covered Blogvillians, keep warm!


  1. That must have been a lot of rain to flood things so much. We hope all those intruders at least said excuse us and tossed you a few treats:)

    Woos- Ciara and Lightning

  2. It looks as if today made up for the rain. What a great time. ☺

  3. High paws duo for defending your river!

  4. Oh my gosh--it is so warm in your world,, for you to go wading in the river!

  5. Hi hi hi! Ojo here! Wow, your river looks amazing! Can I come play and swim with you???

  6. Look at all of those nice mud puddles to splash in!

  7. Crikey I bet all those snow covered Blogvillians are green with envy. Except for the storm, I guess!

  8. oh wow... a lot of interesting events... furst a scary storm and then pirates who came with a ship and even camouflaged as floaters to occupy YOUR beach...

  9. Intruders! Good job on laying down the law. That's your beach!!

  10. We know how hot it has been for you so we guess all that rain was good. Stay cool and we will stay warm.

  11. really - I hope you made them all pay a toll for passing through YOUR beach :) :)

  12. I hope that you didn't have to go OUT during that horrid Rain, Roxy... you should NOT have your furs getting wet with RAIN... butt River water and Puddle Water are a Different Story all together..
    HOW RUDE of those PEEPS to Dare Invade YOUR BEACH!!!
    I am VERY lucky... we did not get a single flake from THIS snow thingy... which is very unusual fur being this close to where the BIG LAKE is... which NORMALLY give US ... LAKE EFFECT Snow..
    BUTT this is a BAD one fur a Big Area of Blogville...

  13. There's nothing like a really good storm...the next days, though muddy and wet, are always so wonderful and clear!

  14. Obviously, telling the intruders to go, worked.

  28. You have never showed swimmers in the river before. A dunk looks like fun. Dui watch out the guy in the canoe has a paddle and he could whack you silly.
    Thanks for being a friend
