A Blustery Day
The winds began to howl fiercely early this morning and have not let up yet. With gusts upto 58 M.P.H., it's all you can do to walk about. The dust and sand generated by the winds has left a brown haze in the sky even more than the usual smog and the mountains are quite indiscernible. While these strong winds force the trees to bend, sway and even break branches (one very near where I was standing), I suppose there are at least two good reasons for strong winds: 1. The windmills that generate electricity are surely surging anew. 2. All of the leaves that were in my yard have now blown into my neighbors.
(correction: I have just noted that while it is true that my leaves are now in my neighbors yard, I failed to see that my other neighbors leaves were being blown INTO mine...well, at least the windmills are surging!)
