Best windstorm ever!

Wow, that was a good one. Started early yesterday morning – most big wind doesn’t really get started until noon or after – and blew so hard that when I actually went out in it for Tobie’s mid-day walkie the sand off the wash about blinded me.

In a good wind, footprints are gone in a day. In a big wind, Jeep tracks are gone in a day.

I was happy to build the Lair down in a hollow for two reasons: Wind and lightning. And even so the place has been struck by lightning, and yesterday the wind meter on the woodshed showed gusts to 35ish mph. Up on the ridgetops it was downright unpleasant. Found no damage at either place during the morning walkie, though.

    Gosh, looks like the god Aeolus has provided you some extra firewood. Hitch that log up to the jeep and haul it to the wood shed, stat!

    Then get cranking on the caulking and sealing of the cabin, I imagine you have some extra dusting to do this week.

    I started wheezing just thinking about all that dirt in the air.
