Dad arrived home to find Molly missing and Milly afraid to say where she went. Milly finally spills the beans and tells Dad she's at the beach house. A storm is brewing and Molly's being held against her will.

The tropical storm

Dad's pacing back and forth worrying about Molly. There's a tropical storm approaching which is making it impossible to go outside. Dad's afraid for Molly because there's no way he can get to her in the storm. Milly is sitting on the window sill watching the waves crash down on the beach. Milly has her bags packed and is waiting patiently to go home. The only thing that would make Milly happier was if Molly walked through the front door.

Molly is in trouble

Molly's sitting on the couch listening to the big guy snore like a freight train in the middle of the night. Molly could hear the wind blowing outside. It sounded like it was going to blow the house down. The windows were shaking and Molly could hear the rain pounding the roof. The remote was close by so she turned on the weather channel. Her favorite newscaster was reporting some really bad weather. Molly was definitely in trouble. If the big guy woke up he was planning on getting rid of her and if she stayed at the beach house it could be floating in the ocean before long. Molly was going to have to put her thinking cap on.

Molly's contemplating what to do

Molly decided she was going to check outside to see just exactly how bad it was. She walked by the big guy as quietly as she could, and proceeded to the front window. When she looked outside she didn't like what she was seeing, the path she always used to get to the beach house, was covered in water. It looked like she wouldn't be leaving the way she had come. She would have to find another way out of here.

Molly's got an idea

Molly decided to go and check out the back patio. That might lead her to an escape route. Molly opened the patio doors and the rain instantly started pelting her in the face. Molly grabbed a towel off the chair and wiped her face. She was standing just inside the doors when she noticed an incline. It was about one hundred feet from the house. It looked steep but Molly thought she could climb it. She didn't have much of a choice because the storm was picking up speed. She had to make a decision fast. It would be nice if she had a rain coat right about now.

Molly takes a chance

Molly decides that she has no choice but to climb the incline to higher ground. It's steeper than what she thought and she has to inch her way up step by step. The wind is ferocious and she's holding on to anything she can get her hands on. When she got near the top she grabbed hold of a bush and pulled herself the rest of the way to the top of the incline. When she looked back she felt a little dizzy. It was a surprise to see how far she'd climbed up the hill. She steadied herself before starting for the boardwalk. Molly was freezing. The temperature must have dropped thirty degrees. She had to concentrate on walking because it felt like the wind could blow her away.

Finding shelter

Molly made it to the hotdog stand just as the winds picked up speed. She saw a picnic table near a cement wall and decided to crawl under it for safety. At least she'd be out of the wind and rain. She was shivering from being so cold but at least she was on safe ground. She didn't have to worry about the big guy because she'd left him behind.

Molly's plan

Molly was laying under the table listening to the wind howl. She was exhausted and could sure use a blanket right about now. Molly decided that as soon as the storm let up she was going to walk to the police station and ask for help. They would find a way to get her back to her family. That was the last thought Molly had before she fell asleep.

When the going gets tough, the tough get going and Molly is surely one tough Cookie or collie!

The noise levels should have been deafening for her inside the house - the snoring within and the howling storm outside, one competing with the other!

Thanks Nancy, Molly is the most persistent and daring of all PI I have ever heard of - siva

Siva, thank you so much for the awesome comment! I think you are right about Molly. She is one tough cookie! Milly is so different but I think they compliment each other and work together well.

Stella, thank you so much for the wonderful comment. I'm so happy that you are continuing to follow Molly and Milly. I love the two of them when they work together. Molly's very straightforward and Milly is quite timid but together they have a strength that could truly move mountains. Throw love into the mix and it shows just how far they will go to protect their family. I absolutely love this dynamic duo. They seem to have taken on a life of their own separate from me. I find it amazing.

Brenda, thank you so much for the comment. Border collies are so smart. They are almost like people. I had a little girl named Chia and she truly believed she was a person. She didn't like dogs believe it or not.

Brenda, we rescued Chia from the pound and the truth of it is that I think it was meant to be. She was a blessing from day one.

Thanks Carol for continuing to follow Molly's summer story. As I was reading your comment I just happened to think that either Molly is saving someone or someone has to save her. That in itself makes for an interesting summer.
