As you may or may not know, whee are British guinea pigs. As British guinea pigs whee are expected to maintain a stiff upper lip. Unfortunately there is another thing whee British are good at doing and that is complaining about the weather. You see, recently my bottom lip has been wobbly and I may have thrown a small tantrum.
It. Won’t. Stop. Raining!
I’m sick of it. Raining all over the fresh grass which taunts us just out of reach in the garden. Raining all over our pigloos and outdoor runs so whee cannot play. Raining all over our hoomans and little hoomans and the vegetables they bring for us from the shops. It’s not good enough. Now I know whee are quite lucky in the fact that our house is at the top of a big hill but a lot of hoomans here in England have been flooded out of their homes. Some piggies in flooded areas won’t be able to have grass for ages because the flooded water contains lots of bad yucky things that can make us sick.
I have prayed to the clouds and asked them to stop. I have prayed to the weathermans in the tellybox. I have even prayed to Mummy to invent a big umbrella to put over England but nothing has worked. I guess whee are stuck with this weather until it decides to go away. In the meantime, fellow British readers whee hope you stay dry, and everyone else whee hope you stay cool, warm, dry and safe wherever you are!
Have you heard the news? Whee have weather warning here in the UK! They are giving us an Amber Warning for Wind. Wind? The little hoomans made a lot of naughty jokes about how they shouldn’t have had beans last night but Mummy said it’s not that sort of wind. It’s the outside wind.
Now I’m not a baby but I really don’t like wind. It ruffles my fur and makes me rumble crossly. A little breeze is nice. In fact I like to climb the bars of my cage so I can
spy on the others feel the breeze through my tummy furs!
Whee live in the front room of our house which has a big chimney. When it’s windy it’s really noisy in there and whee don’t much like it. I sit there rumbling and rumbling. Mummy said I should be grateful because some piggies live outside in the wind. I wouldn’t like that so I take her point. But with these wind warnings in place whee hope that efurryone with outdoor piggies, rabbits or other animals brings them indoors, just till it’s past. The winds are predicted to be 80mph round us which is pretty scary.

This is what it says for us tonight:
Heavy and persistent rain will spread northeast, coupled with increasingly strong winds. Winds strengthening further towards dawn, with potentially damaging gusts and squally showers.
Eeeks, whee think it’s extra hay and snuggles before bed tonight!
