Good 34º super dark and foggy morning.
Yesterday the rain that was predicted didn't show. We had a few sprinkles but not the storm they said. This coming storm is supposed to be harsh and the "worst in 40 years" !

Interesting about Weimaraners.....
The Weimaraner was originally bred for hunting in the early 19th century. The name comes from Grand Duke Karl August of 'Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach', in the city of Weimar. Early Weimaraners were used by royalty for hunting large game such as boar, bear and deer. As the popularity of large game hunting began to decline, Weimaraners were used for hunting smaller animals like fowl, rabbits and foxes.
Instantly recognized by a distinctive silvery-gray coat, male Weimaraners stand 25 to 27 inches at the shoulder, and females 23 to 25 inches. A properly bred Weimaraner will be solid colored, with maybe a small white spot on the chest. The face, with its amber or blue-gray eyes framed by long velvety ears, is amiable and intelligent. Overall, the breed presents a picture of streamlined grace and balance.Weimaraners are excellent with kids and yearn to be full-fledged family members. Easy grooming, train-ability, a loving nature, and a positive attitude make them excellent pets, as long as owners are committed to keeping them physically active and mentally engaged.
