This is a TDB Special Report. I'm your diligent doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel.
Yesterday we had some high winds that did a lot of damage all over the Western NY area. Trees and power lines were knocked down and many communities are without power. We were lucky to have power this morning.
Our next door neighbor started working on cutting up that big tree that fell down and almost hit his house. Ghostwriter and Dad went out to have a talk with him to see if he needed any help, and decide what to do about the damage to our fence. When the tree roots pulled out of the ground, it left a gap between the ground and the bottom of the fence which was big enough for me to crawl under. I had to be hooked up to a long tie-out leash this morning.
I wasn't too happy about that! But they figured out a temporary solution by simply putting a couple logs in that spot.
I did a thorough inspection of these logs. I discovered they were oozing pine sap, which I got all over my ear, and now I smell like a Christmas tree!
But at least I can go out into my back yard without a leash again. Just when we thought everything was going to be OK, our power suddenly went out. That was about 1pm.
Fortunately, Dad got the growling dragon noisy machine power generator monster thing going just as it was getting dark!
We have no idea when RG&E will restore power to our neighborhood. Hopefully tomorrow morning. We'll keep you posted. This has been a TDB Special Report. Thanks for watching. We now return you to your regularly scheduled program.
