Wind Song

The power went out this afternoon, so I decided it was a good time to walk down and feed my birds. As I stepped out of the house, and the sound of the wind surrounded me. It was a felt sense as much as a sound, filling the world. Then I heard a crack that out did even the wind song. I turned and watched one of my huge deciduous trees crash down the hill. 

Watching a tree fall is an amazing thing. The power of nature, the power of the wind. Fortunately no one was in or near it, although Charlie was headed that direction. He looked at me and we shared a moment of awe.

The power came back on in about half an hour (thankfully!) and when I went back outside it was sunny and calm. Now it's snowing. The weirdness of this winter.
