In Like a....
If March comes in like a dragon, will it go out like a gecko? I sure hope so
What crazy, windy weather! A friend drew this to our attention....train derails in wind. A friend of Liz's came home to the back of her house blown off. Others have lost huge trees and all manner of sheds and buildings. So far just small branches, chairs, and other odds and ends here. We keep hoping.
Meanwhile, we are becoming almost accustomed to phones jingling with warnings from weather services and power utilities, and to the house shaking and things blowing around all over.
Finn about lost his stuff this morning seeing objects that were closer than they appeared yesterday. Oh, how he hates anything out of place out in the yard! If only he had opposable thumbs he could be my gardener and keep it all tidy!
Thought I heard the first woodcock last night. In fact I am nearly positive. Alas I was taking photos on the wrong side of the house and when I went over to the best listening place it had stopped. Nothing this morning, but then what creature in its right mind would sing in this tempest. (Of course the cardinal was....)
Anyhoo, hang on tight and hope for the best. If this wind were to by chance dry up the ground so a little less mud was tracked into the house and coated every hair on our very hairy Border Collie, I guess I would let up on the complaining.
At least a little.
