Tropical Soupy-ness

Tropical soupy-ness as we start our day--We are cloaked in clouds and haze with humidity feeling like we're swimming in it.  It's very quiet, and I didn't hear birds singing when we were out this morning with the dogs. The county where we live won't be directly impacted by the hurricane. Right now they are predicting that we will only be getting the very edge of it with rain and wind increasing later this afternoon.  
It looks like the outdoor plans we had will have to be put on hold.

 It'll be a good day to catch up on things inside. 
Enjoy your Saturday, and stay safe everyone!

  8. That last picture looks like "STORM WATCH 2011! with one weather person snoozin' on the job! I think it's so interesting that the birds just know when big weather is coming and just sort of batten down the hatches.

    Stay dry!

  11. Yes, stay inside. We had a string of hot, humid days this past summer and at those times even the dogs were begging to come back into the air conditioned house after doing their business. That's when I got my closets cleaned and the family room carpet scrubbed☺.

  12. I know that kind of humidity! We've had some of that here. We've been keeping up with the hurricane and hope it fizzles out. You, too, have a great weekend.

  13. So glad that you won't be effected much by the hurricane. It bypassed our coast, too and we're keeping our fingers crossed for the rest of the country. It did leave behind quite the humidity though!

  14. We are staying safe thinking about our southern blogger friends. The winds are picking up here now but with fingers crossed we may just have a wind storm...lesser of 2 evils. Take care!!!!

  18. Hi Kim,

    Thank you for your kind comment on my blog, it is nice to feel like I'm not alone. Hopefully we'll both be able to work things out!

    We're going to get a good solid whack from Irene tomorrow, the last time we got a major impact from what was left of a hurricane was when Katrina dumped buckets of rain on us a few years ago. Waiting to see what tomorrow will bring. At least I got my rain coat. It was on sale so I got it for under 100$, so at least I'll be relatively dry.

  19. I'm sorry about the rain and soup but I'm glad that you won't get the full brunt of the storm.

    Every photo of the dogs on the porch looks idyllic. I can see why you love your porch!

  20. Good thing you're not in direct line of the big storm -- hope you don't get too much rain, though!

    Woofs & hugs, <3

  21. Hunker down, have some wine, pet the dogs. That should keep you busy until the storm passes.

  22. Glad to hear, you'll be out of Irene's path. Hopefully, she'll head out to sea. We want all our friends to be safe.

  25. Hi KIm,
    We will not be effected at all here in Pittsburgh. I have been however glued to the weather channel today as I was sewing watching the effects of this storm. It is so huge and frightening--I am glad that you will be spared from it.

  27. Whew! Glad to know Irene won't be passing in your area.
    I'm staying indoors too due to the heat. Not complaining, could be worse.
    Take care.

  28. So glad all of you will not be in the direct path of Irene. Do any of your dogs have anxiety with storm?
    Take care.

  37. We survived. We were quite lucky. Like you Kim, we were on the edge and received less than 1/2" inch of rain and only some minor wind gusts. Your doggies appear very content.
