PostSubject: Intersting day at the shelter...   Wed Aug 25, 2010 8:30 pm

Went to help out at the animal shelter today...was 105 out! Started with grooming a Samoyed (although I suspect it was a husky mix) and a Husky...came out with fur all over my face and sweaty...very frustrating but it was cool playing with the dogs ^^

Then out of nowhere...the sky gets dark...temp drops like 20 degrees (litteraly). I knew it was going to thunder a bit, which it did but then freezing rain started to fall. All the volunteers and employees were outside with outstretched arms enjoying it, myself included.

5 minutes later it started blowing wind like crazy and the rain came down harder, an employee runs towards the office yelling at us to get inside. I was like "Ow ow ow" all the way there because the hail stung a bit. Electricity went out so it was stuffy with 15+ people in a small room with no AC.lol.

Went outside and after some mingling with the ppl under the shade structure I checked some of the kennels...they were FLOODED, the drain was clogged. Anyway, suffice it to say that damage control afterwards left us ALL wet and tired ^^ But still we all agree it was awesome! Least my car is clean!!

I love being outside in the rain, but mixing dog hair with water is no fun. Throw in some hail and it's crappy. lol
If we see hail like that here in Indiana we REALLY run for cover because it usually means a tornado is bearing down! Shocked

Actually I heard there was some kind of fire tornado in the area...but I don't know if its true, I'll be doing some searching to see if it really happened.
