In Like a Lion
Has anyone besides me been living for days with crazy windstorms? We've been dealing with 70 MPH gusts that come roaring down our little canyon. (To see where we live, click on the photo above. The red arrow is pointing to our house.) Finally, this evening, the winds seem to have calmed.
Just now my teenage son (who snapped the photo) came to me. "Close your eyes. Tip your head back. And smell!" He opened the deck door behind me. My favorite scent rolled in, cold and crisp and fresh. Rain. The first rain of spring.
Of course, now that the rain has turned to sleet, I have no doubt that winter is not yet through with us. Which is okay. Because March has most definitely come roaring in like a lion. It will be nice to watch it leave like a lamb.
What about you? What is your favorite type of weather?
