A Dog in the Dark
February 25, 2010
Yesterday was a really strange day. It snowed very hard from the moment that we woke up. Dad went off to work like normal and Mom and I went to our upstairs office like normal. Usually she and I work a lot on the computer . I blog and tweet and sometimes work on the newsletter to my “Sensible Dog” members. (Mom does a lot on the computer too – although I don’t really know what she does.)
Well, suddenly she said that we couldn’t work anymore. No computer on, no lights on, no clocks on. Very Strange!! She went outside and moved snow around for quite a while. Then Dad came home and he moved snow around. I’m not sure why they worked so hard. The snow wasn’t any more fun where they put it. In fact, the snow wasn’t really fun at all. It was deep and it was heavy and it was wet.
Then they came inside. It was dark. Still no computer on, no lights on, no clocks on. Very, very strange. Mom lit some very dim oil lamps. They ate dinner in a very dim dinning room. That was kind of nice, but I ate in the very, very dark hallway. Why no oil lamps for me?
Maybe, I should have worn my harness -the trim is very reflective.
Then Mom and Dad got their flashlights and went to the barn to feed the horses. They were gone and all of a sudden the lights were on, the computer was on, clocks were on. Wow. How did that happen? There was no one around! Very, very, very strange. But lights are good.
