Region – Baypath Humane Society in Hopkinton recently became the temporary home to a pair of abandoned pit bull mix dogs, both estimated to be between 2 and 3 years old. The doggie duo were discovered by residents who found them wandering on Wilson Street in Hopkinton and called the shelter. When staff set out to find the dogs they were able to find the male, whom they named “Mush” – but his “mate” proved elusive. “Blush,” as she was later named, was hiding in Weston Nurseries, scared and alone until a staff member brought Mush to the scene. Mush saved the day, giving his girl Blush the confidence to come running to safety.

Tropical Storm ‘Arthur’ is born

Region – As expected, Tropical Storm Arthur has developed from within the area of disturbed weather off the southeast U.S. coast. It still looks like he will be a nuisance for Fourth of July celebrations all up and down the east coast in the Thursday to Friday time frame, bringing the potential for “predecessor” rain Thursday into Friday and then Arthur’s rain shield should cover at least a portion of southeast New England, with the possibility of strong to storm force winds raking the coastal areas of the outer Cape and the Islands. The exact location of the rain shields and the storm position is nearly impossible to pin down with any certainty from this far out, but it does seem that rain will impact our area from later on Thursday into Friday morning. I don’t yet know where Arthur’s rain shield will set up, and there is the possibility that it may miss central Massachusetts altogether, leaving us with relatively dry conditions later Friday into Saturday.
