The Surging Wind has Brought Us Colder Temperatures—-Monday, October 7, 2019

We have had wind for several days now, making setting tubes a bit of a challenge

Although the daytime temperatures have been warm enough we didn’t need coats in the middle of the day

The winds gusted and moaned through the standing corn, across the rooftops and slammed into standing buildings

swallowing all of us in fine coats of dust.

The wind flailed the electric fences

and drove leaves, weeds and other loose things across the land and into our hair and eyes.

Sunday day we were still experiencing a wee wind, one that had a tendency to make us shiver.

I hint (just a hint),  of winter coming.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. Our wind has brought the smell of smoke. The temperature tomorrow is forecast to be 102°F, and we’re barely into spring. There are fires further south in the state already and more wind on the way. I like wind, but not when it does this…


  2. I’m least fond of wind than most anything other than lightning. Wind makes me nervous. You never know what it’s going to do. Hold on to your hat. We had a cold snap and it will return by next week. Yes, a hint of winter. Our is milder than yours though. Enjoy the warm.


  3. Yes colder here too, I saw a Wooly the other day…looked just like yours! I suppose my flowers will be gone by the weekend, I walked around my wildgardens today and took photos of late bloomers:)
