It was 4 a.m. when Olive jumped on the bed. She does this most mornings to catnap on my husband’s chest. However, this morning she missed and landed on his face.
My husband howled and ran into the bathroom, his face dripping blood. Olive got his nose, upper and lower lips and chin with her polydactyl claws. His face is a mess.
Later, I went to swim laps and the lifeguards told us to get out of the pool due to lightening.
My husband was out on errands when the car wouldn’t start. He had to wait 90 minutes for AAA.
I was at home amazed how the bright sunny day had turned into thunder, lightning, pouring rain and monster winds. There were tornadoes in Flagstaff — two hours away.
Heading back home after AAA replaced the battery, my husband called and said he was in a haboob!
I googled it and told him to pull over immediately. Everything I read said NOT TO DRIVE. Here’s a video of the haboob.
He said he was driving through it. There were trees on the freeway. Everyone was going under 40 mph and had their flashers on.
Once he drove out of the haboob he ended up in a flash flood.
My anxiety went into overdrive. He made it home safely — finally.
Have you ever had one of those days?
Unfortunately yes. We just muddle through as best we can
The weather here is extreme. It makes for some exciting days though. You’re right. We muddle through.
Holy COW! That was a rough Bingo card to pull. Glad you came out of this relatively unscathed.
I’m thankful we got through the day okay!
I heard about this in Phoenix yesterday. Years ago, I was in Egypt and a dust storm came over the pyramids. We really need to cover our face, eyes, ears — sand everywhere. It’s scary! Glad you are all safe.
That would be terrifying! I’m glad I was home and not driving with my husband.
Oh my! A very happening Day. The start was very painful for your husband. I’m glad you all are safe at home now.
It was a shocking way to wake up!
Oh I can only imagine the pain.
I think it’s safe to say I’ve never had a day like this in my life. Individual events maybe, put someone was out to get both of you I think!
It was nuts! What next I kept asking.
Don’t ask that! He had his 3 in a day so just hope it’s over. Hope the cat scratches healed. Poor Olive. She didn’t mean it.
Olive really didn’t mean it and hid from us the rest of the day.
