Excitement and a Mackerel Sky

Sophie was quite easily excited today on the walk
at Point Pleasant Park.
She gets this glint in her eye and before you know it
she is dancing and hopping all over the place.

We think that 
of the weather to come.
When this happens Sophie becomes more jovial and hyper.
You saw how she teased Ron by not giving up the ball
and how she ran and dove for the ball and almost hit the ground with her chin.
These actions are somewhat normal for her but today were 
a lot more than usual
due to that fishy sky!

  2. Sophie you are never to old to learn something! I have never heard of the expression "mackerel sky" before, or that it foretells the possibility of bad weather!

  3. Hi Y'all!

    Love the video! We get those skies, but mostly I see them when we are at the shore. Here in the mountains it seems you can have one weather on one side of the mountain and different on the other side. We can sit in sun and watch the storm clouds circle around the mountains.

    Y'all come by now,

  4. I learned something new today. Mom saw this same sky on Tuesday and it looked like a quilt to her so she called it a quilted sky. So now we know!

    1. Oh Mitch...I tried that fishy stuff and "P..U" did My mouth stinkeroo...so no more of that stuff, here. My Dads said that they were brought up with the mackerel sky thingie as a child probably 'cos they lived in a coastal province and with lots of fishing stories and particularly ghost stories! I just wanted to say I'm so sorry to hear about Maggie...sweet vibes going out!

  6. Hope the weather doesn't get to bad for you. We are in the midst of a blizzard and expect at least a foot of new snow... going for the record this year! I plan to get out later today after work and get more snow shots.
