windy moments


Mother Nature revealed her determined side last night and into the predawn hours with bursts of wind along with a few gusts that knocked out our power temporarily—thanks, generator, for kicking in and counteracting the disruption of my early morning. 

Upon checking the property at daylight the report stands at all structures safe—check; all trees upright—check, even the two questionable ones hovering over our creek at the back of the house which could sway either way. 

Living on top of a hill has its advantages, and I will count more of them than the occasional nuisance from a windy night. There's always a nap waiting later in the day to add back the hours of lost sleep.
