The winds are howling outside, and the snow is swirling and drifting into sculptured mounds like sand dunes. I had hoped we were done with winter but no, gotta get outside and do some more shoveling. And the snow had just about melted when this storm arrived. Wednesday we had a big warmup and hit 50 degrees. That was the day I came home from work and went down to look for something in the garage where I discovered a veritable waterfall pouring through the middle of the ceiling. I'm not talking a drip, and even leak sounds too tame. I sprang into action and got out the camping coolers to put under the falls. I noticed lots of nude dancers belongings were soiled and the floor of the garage was a lake. There is a drain with a wire wrapped around it that must have been frozen. I found the end of the wire and plugged it into the socket, hoping that this would ease the situation. It did after about twenty minutes. As I was fretting and dumping the coolers, I kept wondering why it stank so much and why the water was so yellow.
Then it dawned on me.
Our patio is on the roof of the garage. Sara does her business these days on the patio. So we had a winter's worth of Sara pee frozen in the space between the patio's wood planks and the roof. This, now melted pee, covered my body and most of nude dancer's things. It was so disgusting, but I howled with laughter anyway (what else is there to do in such situations?) and went upstairs to shower. Once the drain unfroze, the waterfall stopped. The garage will probably be stinky for months.
There's some Hint from Heloise that deals with cat pee. I remember reading it in the newspaper, but don't remember what it was, being a dog person and all. You might want to check her website.
We had 78 degrees here last Wednesday but now it's below freezing. No snow though.
Sara thinks you smell rather good actually. She says your welcome for the shower. LOL.
We had a fresh deluge of snow here yesterday, too. We have now had continuous snow since the end of October .. 5 months ... and my heart and body yearn for green!
At least there is St. Paddy's Day green today ... better than none, I suppose. Oh, and green beer.
Golden doggie showers
Oh my! The joys of home ownership are many, aren't they?
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Oh my the dog pee shower is sadly hilarious!!
I don't know where all our snow is going to go if it ever melts. Do you know where I can find plans for an ark?
Isn't that taking golden showers to the extreme?? LOL!
what the hell - maybe its good for the complexion????
Eeuuw. Our princess sometimes pees on our deck in the winter because she refuses to trudge through the snow to the yard, but luckily for us there is only ground underneath the deck and the melting snow and the rain soon clear it (and the stink) off.
I think nude dancer has become a metaphor for bodily functions.
grea dog pee story. it may be new quirky activity to replace a "golden shower". unless, sara has some golden retriver in her, then its an apprpriate name for your garage experience.
Ah man, I'm totally eating right now.
And now I'm done eating.
hey. yellow water is better than brown water, in my opinion. like one of those awful questions you get, would you rather be deaf or blind? well thank you very much, i prefer neither. as do i prefer to be showered neither with dog pee or poo. however. it could be worse.
