Battening down the hatches! Ruby update!

Starting Saturday late evening, we were due for 67 hours of non stop winds between 45 and 59 mph. Now our forecast is for 48 hours between 45 and 68 mph plus associated rain!

DB walked around the garden yesterday, placing wedges in fence panels to stop them from rattling and hopefully not being blown out. Our mini greenhouse has had a heavy chair put in front of it, all loose lying items put away.

We shall probably have power cuts so bread and soup will be made tomorrow ready for heating on our camp stove. Kindling and logs for two days will also be brought inside. We will hibernate and keep safe.

Ruby has picked up some sort of bug we think. She had her last meal Wednesday at 5pm, didn’t even come near the kitchen for breakfast. She threw up, didn’t even want to drink all day. Threw up again and just slept.

Today thankfully, although not quite herself, she felt like a little breakfast but more importantly is drinking well. So far so good.

She brought her breakfast up... Been to the vets, nothing untoward found, meds given, go back tomorrow. She had a little boiled rice, chicken and chicken stock (like a thick soup) for tea, so far so good.

  1. Poor dog! I hope the storm isn't bad. We had one here with some tornado damage reported but nothing horrible here, thankfully.

    1. We now get very small tornadoes and water spouts occasionally in this country. Unheard of a few years ago.

    1. Thanks. Hope she continues to improve, has certainly lost some weight.

  3. I am visiting my stepdaughter in the Lake District. We are meant to travel home on Sunday but might stay an extra day as I don’t fancy 5 hours on the motorway in high winds. Poor Ruby, glad to hear she is drinking.

  4. We are ready for the storm to hit too. Hopefully it won't be as bad as predicted. Hope Ruby is on the mend.
