These guys need to give Pingo some lessons. While Pingo was freaking out and hurting herself (pulled muscle while trying to run from thunder on wood floor!), Mac, Franklin and Sleet were unfazed by the thunderstorm.
Franklin & Sleet hung out on the couch, with Twicket the cat. Franklin stayed there through the entire storm. Sleet went back and forth between her bed and the couch. It was pretty much over when I took this one--you can see the puddles outside the window from the rain and hail.
I thought Mac would be terrified as he is a timid little guy, but he slept in the middle of the kitchen floor through it all. His equally timid brother, Ozzy, thought the downpour was great fun. He dug lots of new holes and played in the mud!
Fortunately, storms are rare here. We get lightening but you can't really see it since it doesn't get dark. Full storms are unusual so hopefully Pingo won't get terrorized again this summer!
