Against the Wind

March came in soft as a lamb yesterday, with sunny skies and balmy breezes. Unfortunately, the proverbial lion followed with a vengeance today, as yet another cold front pushed through the region, this one with wind gusts topping 30 miles an hour long after the storms of the morning had passed.

So, we settle in for a few more days of highs in the 50s, and hope the 70s forecasted for early next week are a sign of much better things to come.

"Springtime is the land awakening. The March winds are the morning yawn."

  1. It was blowing here too. I attempted to clean up some walking irises between rain showers but had to give it up as my yard debris kept blowing out of the trash bag. I like your quote from Lewis Grizzard. I used to enjoy his column.

  2. The wind is unbelievable...we've got moss all over our yard. Warmer weather has to be coming soon...at least I hope so.
