Burglind, you’re such a pain !

This post is also available in : French German Italian

The storm Burglind (called also Eleanor) hit Switzerland with violence on Wednesday : winds were stormy, so strong that they even made a train go off the rails !

And since the night from Wednesday till Thursday, it’s raining, it’s raining, it’s raining… and we have almost not been going out any more for 2 days. Fields around us begin to be flooded, and several landslides or floods took place in various places in Switzerland.

Claire tries to propose us various activities so that we are not bored, but with such a weather, we prefer to sleep during the day. She manages to make us move early in the morning or at the end of the day only.

Nevertheless, I’m available at other moments ; moreover, towards midnight, I mew in front of the door of the bedroom to tell it to her. She once got up, but didn’t want to play : she was rather grumpy ! And now she doesn’t even get up any more when I call her…

Zorro is wiser : he waits until she gets up from herself during the night to invite her to play by chirping, but she doesn’t play either.

We need to know: does she want to play with us, or not ?

    Ooh you need to be here in New Zealand!

    This a.m. it was C30 and this afternoon we had a tropical storm fly in and say Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii and rain

    and rain and rain and rain.

    BUT we are better off that the top of the North Island which is very VERY wet indeed 😉

    Oh noes! Here’s hoping you all stay safe and dry in that weather! Around here, the water is in solid form, and the temps are frigid for a few days. It’s actually warmer in Iceland than in Michigan! LOL!

    The cats need to learn that there is no human playtime in the night time! Mine know this. What they do expect is that if I get up in the night, I am required to immediately provide a night time food snack to all comers!

    I know…aren’t them cranky during the night! It must be something about the light that makes them happier. I just leave the old flea bag alone during the night now. She’s no fun. I play by myself and run up and down the hall looking for invisible ghosts. It’s fun.

    Strange how humans do not want to play in the middle of the night :/
    We had a big storm on Thursday and it knocked our power out for 29 hours!
    Friday was very cold and we were happy when the lights came back on at 9PM

    Wow, there are bad weathers all over the place! You have Burglind, we have Grayson (10 days of freezing weather down to 6F here – where 29F is the usual low) and Austrlia set records highs!

    It’s unfortunate your weather is so stormy and you’re unable to go outside. Trying to get Claire to play at midnight is a hard thing to do. Humans like their nighttime sleeps. When I try to get my people up at 5 in the morning, my dad will put me out of the bedroom and close the door in my face! It’s very rude.
