The gale of a wind blew all day yesterday filling our air with choking dirt and dust.  DUST-!It was a mess changing water —

Hunkered-downBoomer wouldn’t even trot around looking for things to smell by the last set of the night, he just sat himself down in the lowest point on the earth (a furrow) and waited for us to finish.  Lots-of-workFuzzy had to work hard to stay with me, but he did it.

Wind-in-the-clouds

The wind picked up over the night and went from gale to very strong gale-it even blew off some tin on one of the roofs.

Rain-storm

Then around three this morning it rained.

Everything settled down, cool and clear by the time we went out and sat the first tubes.

After-the-storm

It was just lovely!

Dust-in-the-air-1

By the time we came in the wind was back.  If the wind blows in the morning here it won’t stop until sometime at night, therefore, we will have wind all day.

Storm-in-the-East

The weather guys have issued a freeze warning for tonight and a freeze watch for tomorrow night.  Then I am hoping we move back toward warmer weather.

Not broiling weather, warm weather.  I hope the weather gods are reading this! :)

  1. We’ve had beyond crappy winds here since last Friday. In fact I lost a couple more big trees to them. Today is the first day (at least this morning) we’ve not had horrible wind. Hoping it sticks.

  2. It sounds as if our Tennessee weather has moved to Colorado. Tennessee weather seems to go from one extreme to other. You got some great sky pictures.

  3. Wind is the only weather I DO NOT LIKE. It doesn’t seem to serve any purpose except to move dirt from one place to another. Good luck with the weather gods.

    We had frost this morning, then nearly 70, and frost in the forecast for tonight…it HAS to settle soon.
    Wishing you a windless day for tomorrow – or as close as you ever come :)

  7. I know how you feel about the wind, it seems like here that as soon as nice weather shows up the wind has to blow like 90 miles an hour! Isn’t it nice to see the green?
