Today I woke up at 4 in the morning because of a HUGE summer rain storm. For awhile I thought it was cool until I remembered Olive Oil ( our new tortoise's nick name you can see my moms blog to see more about her ) . For those of you who haven't seen her burrow it is like a big drain. Me and mom burst out of are rooms at the same time and ran out side. There was a huge puddle but barley any had got to her burrow. We where safe to brain storm on how to get her out. Or so we thought. Not five minuets later me and mom go check on her and she is completely covered in water!I stayed to watch her while mom ran to get something to pull her out. Meanwhile the rain is still pouring and that means more water. Mom woke dad up and then found a mop, fishing pole, and some electricians tape. I have no idea if she is dead or not and if she is alive how long she can hold her breath for. I held a flash light while mom tried to pull her out. Then Olive woke up and helped us by trying to climb out. We were so relived but what would have happened if we weren't home? Right now Olive Oil is in a small box in the boats, sports, and travel room sleeping away. and her burrow is completely filled with water. The rain has stopped now just in time for me to go to school. See you guess later and scroll down!
