What the Freak Just Happened – Conversations with Stella and the Pack


I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges, and I am freaked out! What just happened?

Me: The biggest, fiercest wind storm I’ve ever seen in person and that includes a couple of hurricanes.

Stella: I can’t see out the backdoor. Lady Human, there is a tree in our patio.

Me: Yeah. The oak tree has been uprooted. The branches are blocking the door. The trunk is leaning against the house.

Tiger: I refuse to share the house with an oak tree.

Me: That tree is 38 or 39 years old. I can’t believe it’s fallen.

Miss Sweetie: Maybe it gave up because Doodlebug is always watering it.

Doodlebug: I like that tree.

Wiggles: Will we ever be able to go out the backdoor again?

Me: Sure. Chainsaws will clear it. I already checked the fence. It appears to be undamaged.

Stella: Now I am sad. The big tree fell. Where will the squirrels live?

Me: Stella, are you really worried about squirrels? I thought they were your nemeses.

Stella: Yes, but that doesn’t mean I wanted their home torn down.

Miss Sweetie: I think Doodle should not water anymore trees.

    1. No injuries, thank God. The tree is still resting on the house and power is still out for us and around 300,000 in the area. They are telling us the winds registered at 71 mph, tropical storm force. I have lived through several hurricanes. I never saw anything like this wind and all from a line of thunderstorms. The dogs appear puzzled by the uprooted tree. We are using portable fans to stay cool

    1. Thank you all so much! We are enjoying our portable fans. If we can’t run our cold air boxes, they are better than nothing. Best regards, Queen Stella
