W-w-w-whoa!


Intrepid.


...16 degrees,
and 64 mph
wind
gusts today.
It is brutal out...
punishing.
I am bundled
beyond recognition.
The wind is howling
in the highest tree tops
causing even the dog
to look up.

The house creaks.
Mini twisters form
on the road with
swirling snow in spirals...
Overhead, the trees knock
and bump together
like chattering teeth.
I take refuge on the
back side of the
mountain
today.
Lakhi
doesn't
seem
to mind.

  1. lg, your photos are really nice. We're in the midst of another storm, too. It always makes Spring seem even further away when you get these late winter storms. Your description is perfect. I'm glad you and Lakhi still managed to get a good romp in!
