Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: Heroes and Hurricanes

thankful thursday blog hop brian 07182019

Hello everyone, thanks once again for coming by for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. I am always so very thankful to each of you for joining us, seriously thankful. Each and every Thursday we share the things for which we are most thankful and we always enjoy reading all of the things you are thankful for too. If you are new to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, thanks for hopping in, we really do excited when new blogger pals join us!

Today I’m thankful for those heroes among us who venture out into the wild weather to help those in need. Hurricane Barry came ashore over the weekend and we watched some of our Coast Guard heroes airlifting out stranded humans and critters on baskets extended down from helicopters. Then there were so many volunteers helping get shelter pets out of dodge before the storm came in. Thank you to all of the first responders who always put the safety and welfare of others first.

We’re also thankful that Hurricane Barry weakened to a tropical storm and we’re thankful that it all wasn’t as bad as it could have been. We send our purrs and prayers to those who were affected by the torrential tropical rain and storms and hope the recovery from the mess is a quick one. Hurricane season is just underway so y’all be careful please.

What are you thankful for today??? Tell us in the comments and then join us for the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

    We are thankful that we don’t live where there are hurricanes or tornadoes. We have an occasional earthquake in California, but they are not where we live. We are thankful we don’t live on a fault line,

    Thank goodness Barry was downgraded as it came ashore. All the volunteers and rescuers working to keep people and animals safe in these storms are heroes.

  3. Summer

    I’m thankful I get awesome opportunities like the one I have this weekend, being a Meet-and-Greet cat at Meow MeetUp in Chicago!

  4. The Dash Kitten Crew

    We have appealed for people to donate to charities helping and who stand ready. This is every cat or dogs worst nightmare. Wet, windy and hopeless. We keep our paws crossed.

  5. Mickeys Musings

    We are thankful that we live in a place with moderate weather.Even out snowstorms are not usually too bad.
    WE send purrs to all affected by Hurricane Barry.

    Though I’m sure it was bad enough for those in its path it most certainly could have been much, much worse. We’re keeping our fingers (and my paws) crossed that we don’t have a hurricane season here like last year.

  7. Madison

    Luckily the storm wasn’t as bad as they thought. We prefer the tornadoes we have over hurricanes, but bad weather is still scary.

    We’re glad Barry didn’t cause nearly as much damage as they thought he would and that everyone was well prepared. We do have bad thunderstorms here but only one tornado since Mom and Dad have lived here and usually just “remnants” of hurricanes and tropical storms. We hope that everyone is recovering from any effects they had from Barry and can enjoy the REST of this super hot summer! Thanks for hosting “Thankfuls” Brian!

    Hugs, Teddy

    Glad you were safe from the hurricane. I am thankful to all those who aid others. Thanks for hosting. Have a great day! XO

  11. Catscue Catmom

    That is a good thankful. Those who rescue others are amazing folks, I am so thankful they do what they do. I think the entire country is thankful that hurricane wasn’t as bad as Katrina and that folks are, for the most part safe and sound after Barry.

  12. Sandee

    There are so many out there that take care of those in need. It’s a tough job and we are grateful that so many choose to serve their communities. I’m glad the storm wasn’t as bad as you thought it might be.

    Thank you for hosting the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Thankful Thursday. My best to your peeps. โ™ฅ

  13. Cathy Keisha

    I agree with you Brian. We have a BFF who lives near Baton Rouge. She left FB but last year we read how she was going into flooded areas getting people’s cats left behind and when she couldn’t find the cats, leaving food. The pics were horrible. We’re also thankful for the 9/11 responders who seem to have been forgotten by our government. We should never forget those scenes are devastation and of the heroes covered with toxic dust trying to return our city and our country back to normalcy. Every day heroes are dying but members of our gov’t would rather spend the $$ giving tax breaks to the rich.

  14. World Of Animals, Inc.

    We hope you are having a wonderful Thankful Thursday. We are very thankful for all the people that help when a disaster has struck an area. Glad Barry downgraded before coming ashore. Thanks for sharing. Have a terrific rest of your day.

  15. Angel Foley Monster, Pocket and River Song

    We join in your thanks to the brave first responders

  16. The OP Pack

    We totally agree with you about those responders. They sacrifice their time and lives to help others all the time. We are happy Barry wasn’t worse than it was, and we are hoping for a very quiet hurricane season.

    It seems that the weather has been crazy everywhere this year. Today, we are thankful because we got a little rain after not getting any for several weeks It wasn’t much but the earth just soaked it up!

    It’s tough what you go through with all the hurricanes and tornadoes. We are in CA and deal with an earthquake every now and then. Hugs and purrs to all the heroes.

    Where would we all be without all the brave people who take care of us? We’re glad this storm didn’t turn out to be worse than it was.

    We’re glad we don’t get hurricanes here–folks go mental over 1″ of snow, imagine what would happen with a hurricane. Actually, we know–idiots would still be out on the roads.

  23. Annie

    Hi, Brian. I really like your pose today with one leg tucked and the other hanging down. Those are some really good things for which to be thankful. I agree, especially about the first responders and that Barry didn’t get as bad as originally thought.

    The weather is wicked and wild and unpredictable. We have had such a heat wave. I always pray for all the hurricanes and tornadoes everywhere. Take care ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. Mags

    We are also thankful that it weakened. We got a lot of rain and a little wind but nothing like it could have been. We too are thankful for all of those that helped with the flooding here and everywhere help was needed. Hugs and nose kisses

    I’m thankful for God’s grace and mercy, for air conditioning, for linemen who go through severe weather conditions to make sure our power comes back on, and for my family!
