Cool memories on a hot day

It's hot.
Our A/C unit died the day before yesterday.
The Pack is hot and dreaming of cold winter mornings and frosty breath...

"Remember that blizzard last December, Lil Belle?"

"Ah...those were the days, Ember. Although as I recall, we weren't very appreciative at the time..."


The morning after the Storm, the Pack ventured forth into a snowy wonderland.

BBBBRRRRRRRRRyyyyyy, What a great set of pictures to start my day with, gave me a big smile and as I looked out my window I said thank you for the winter but I still like a nice sunny day in the 20's in the summer. You Eastern folk have had some pretty hot, muggy weather lately and Hazel's pictures should cool you off just nicely.

Hazel I hope you get your A/C working again soon....for the pack's sake... patti

Just heard from the insurance company. Since it died from pre-storm brown-out/power surge conditions, the AC will be upgraded and replaced, and the repairs made to the furnace mother board, all for the price of our $500 deductible!!! Whoot whoot whooot!!!!!

Great story! Great pics of your gorgeous pack?

Almost made me long for a snowy winter day. Note the word "almost."

Yep, I noticed that! hazel, on the other hand, would welcome a blizzard in a heartbeat! As long as the hummers had a place to keep warm, anyway...they can move into our basement till the snow melts.

That's when demand for electricity is so high that there isn't enough to go around--usually you can see the lights dim and things don't run quite as quickly or as well. Unfortunately, it can cause compressors to overheat and burn out because the fans can't keep them cool enough. Add the power surges to that and you fry circuit boards, too... Double whammy.

It's just one step this side of a black-out! Which I am very grateful we didn't have as well!

Hazel,

The pictures are wonderful!!!
You have such a gorgeous pack, all of them! But Cass and Lil Belle just steal my heart
I do have to say that I'm not so fond of the snow
Yes, it did make me COLD
That's the last thing I want to even think about right now
I long for our week in Vegas with 35-40 degree temps

What great shots! I love the pics you post - especially those of the dogs. Funny, I think I have a bigger appreciation for setters now that I am sure Jessie has setter in her!

Keep posting these wonderful photos - and the snow photos were a nice touch for today - I am sitting in A/C now, but it is 98 out - heat index over 100 for sure.

Oh the good ole days of winter! NOT!

While I truly enjoy the snowy pictures of the pack, I love the heat myself.

Great news on the A/C front and I'm sure it's nice to be back into a comfortable temperature zone in the house now.

Jessie will ask for no less than the proper amount of appreciation for setterdom, and will probably demand much more than just the proper amount! That's just how they are! Always askin' fer more lovin's!

Glad you enjoyed the pics. But now we need more of Jessie and the rest of your gang
