Brooding—Tuesday, November 3, 2015

ENow that we have moved from [my favorite] Daylight Savings Time into the time —- called get up and work in the dark and go home and work in the dark — Mountain Standard Time

The day does not so much dawn

FAs it just stops being night.  A small phenomenon, which will last for a spell.  Then we will start getting weak sunsets and weaker sunrises.

And all living things goes on hold, waiting for the lengthening of the daylight.

MThe weather apps say a big storm is to blow in here today…some places will see 45-50 m.p.h. winds.  Not good.  Of course that might not be here.  They are also saying we will see rain and snow at 5,000 ft.  We live a little above 5,000 ft.

PInk-Morning-RainThe clouds are gathering….I can see them coming in  over the mountain tops…a brooding feeling —- the Uncompahgre Plateau (not the mountain just above, that is Grand Mesa) has a dark and brooding look, the clouds are having a dark and menacing social party, talking about if they really are going to dump rain and possibly snow—maybe not, they darkly mutter to each other,  we just might like to fool the weather people.  Then a evil chuckle resonates between the cliffs and canyons as they band together chuckling.

NUntil the storm gets here, we wait, working at buttoning down all flapping and possibly flying things. We are gathering in the wood for the fire, making sure all can handle wind.  Or a huge dumping of rain.

  1. You sound like us getting ready for cyclone season! We’re one state in Australia that doesn’t change to Daylight Saving Time. Being in the tropics, we’re closer to the equator than most, and the seasonal variation isn’t that great. It’s pretty annoying when the other move ahead an hour – we have to remember!
