POWER in the Form of Wind — Sunday, April 24, 2022

Friday the wind became more than over-the-top, it became so concentrated

That the electricity went out for three hours.

We had 65 m.p.h. wind gusts

Full of dirt and flying things.

Terry talked to a friend, at the power company, and was told trees in the Hotchkiss area were blown over causing outages; power poles snapped in our area.

What a mess.

After the wind left we had a hail storm.  All these little white blossoms are from the pear tree.

Scattering bits and pieces everywhere.

Then at the end of the day—-the sun shone upon the bruises and fissures the wind breathed on the land.

Putting us all back together with its own unique rhythm of healing.

From my world to your heart,

  1. Oh Wow! This wind stuff can quit any second! Looks like eastern Colorado over there! Your poor fruit trees with the hail – Mother Nature is so po’d this year.
    We’ve had the 60+, but luckily no downed trees, nor fires close by. No moisture. No green. Maybe spring will get here yet… maybe.
    Don’t blow away over there!


  2. Oh my goodness….so sorry to hear about that. I hate strong winds and power outages. Hope everything in your world will be OK!


  3. Lulu: “That all sounds a bit too breezy for my tastes. I don’t like the part about trees falling over.”
    Charlee: “Neither do we! Trees are meant to be climbed, and you can’t climb them if they’re on the ground!”
