Thankful Thursday Blog Hop:  Dodging the Storms

thankful thursday blog hop brian 07132023

Hello everyone, thanks to you all for stopping by for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  I am always thankful to each of you for joining us!  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 get excited when new blogger pals join us!

Today we’re thankful that in our immediate area we dodged the storms.  Our friends in the Northeast have been hit really hard and we’re sending tons of purrs and prayers their way.  We’re thankful for all of the first responders who have performed hundreds of water rescues to help save lives.  The first responders are always there when we need them and we’re so thankful they are there.

We’re also thankful that our pals Melissa and Mudpie from Vermont has said that they are okay.  Even though Vermont was hit really hard, in their immediate area it wasn’t all that bad.  That’s a real sigh of relief and we’re thankful that that are okay.

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

We too are lucky that damaging storms moved north of us, while we only received some rain and thunder.

It’s hard on all of us, people, animals and even the plants and trees when those storms come through. I’m glad all is well where you are.

We’re sorry that Vermont was hit so hard, we feel for them. But I’m alsoglad that Melissa and Mudpie are okay. And we’re happy that your area was okay, too, Brian. Storms can really be a menace, we know because we were in a direct hit from an EF4.

We are sure glad you dodged those scary storms, Brian. Vermont got it really bad, but we were glad to hear Melissa and Mudpie are safe.

Its good to know our friends are safe.
We were under a tornado watch, and while we had severe thunderstorms, we didn’t have a tornado…the radar sure looked scary though…we’re thankful we are unscathed.
We are thankful for the much needed rain…

We’re glad you’re OK……we keep getting weather reports that say we’ll have bad storms but so far we haven’t. We’d like some rain but NOT “bad” storms!!

I’m glad you’re all okay too, Brian, and that you weren’t impacted by the storms. I saw brief news coverage of parts of Vermont, it was incredible (and not in a good way). Scary. Prayers to all.

All that flooding is terrible, Brian! I send purrs to all those affected.

So glad to hear you weren’t bothered by those storms, and same with Melissa & Mudpie, thanks for the update on them too. Stay safe and dry everyone!

I slept on the couch last night because we were under a tornado watch from 9pm til 3am. I was worried about the boys and wanted quick access to them in case we had to go to the basement of our building. The storms that hit us were the ones that came from Chicago a few hours earlier, that spawned a number of tornadoes including at least one in downtown Chicago. Thankfully, when the storms hit us they weren’t as bad. I was also glad when I connected with Melissa on FB that she didn’t have any of that flooding.… Read more »

isn’t that the truth…. storms have been mighty lately all over, and sudden, destructive
it’s always a blessing when they don’t destroy us

We are so glad that none of our bloggers have been hit by catastrophic weather, so far, and hope that continues. As I am writing, we have a tornado and thunderstorm warnings, but it appears that it is the west end that was affected, and we are out farther in the east. But, it’s not over yet. We hope you all keep comfy-cozy.

It’s been a very scary week, but we’re so thankful to have been spared from the horrible flooding. We’re very thankful for all our friends well wishes too! Love you guys.

So glad you all dodged the storms! We had a fast moving hard storm tonight that took down two trees and just missed our pool! Luckily, the kids who are always right out there were not today when those tall trees came crashing down! Vermont and north of us did indeed get hit bad…broken road, flooding, sadly some missing folks. Hope you all stay cozy and safe!

Wow, we hadn’t seen the news about the storms. That’s scary. We were supposed to get some yesterday and today, but none so far. It’s soooo humid, though.

We are really sorry Mom did not post today, and so we didn’t get to join the hop. She’s thankful that when we lost power Wednesday night that is was not out until 5 a.m., as the power company had predicted.

Yeah, we had a really bad t-storm yesterday a.m. So bad that even *I* heard the thundering. Stay safe and I’m glad Mudpie is ok where she is.

We’re so glad that your friends are all ok, the crazy weather happening everywhere is really bonkers right now! And we’re really purrleased that Melissa and Mudpie are fine, what a relief! It’s been torrential rain, and wind here for the last couple of days and prior to that, just constant rain. Happy Sunday to mew all!
