The storms caused a major Hydro outage that lasted for 22 hours causing concern for all the food (dogs & human) in the freezers would unthaw.
Had to get the gas generator going to keep the food in the freezers frozen.
The other major challenge this week was the heatwave that lasted for 6 days creating temperatures in the lower to mid 30's celsius with a humidex readings in the 40's.
The main task this week was keeping the dogs comfortable and well hydrated.
Several of the dogs dug huge/deep nests in the sand by their houses to keep cool. As you can see from the photos above, they did a good job. After the return to cooler temperatures, the houses were returned to being level.
Also, the storms with torrential rain, lightning/thunder and strong winds blew in some foreign species of insects as seen above with the Fishfly that normally is seen around the lower Great Lakes and Southern Ontario.
Needless to say the flies and the mosquitoes thrived in these conditions!
On Friday the morning temperature was in the mid teens and single digits over Friday Night into Saturday Morning.
The cooler temperatures was certainly welcomed by the dogs and myself!!!
Until next week.....
