APRIL 6, 2017
I came very close to missing this muscular display.
There had been inexplicable crashing outbursts, sounds of fury signifying who knew what….things carried off my deck by wild winds? Hurtling through the air endangering aircraft? Planets?
How were the birds reacting?
Could my apple tree still be covered in blooms?
I wandered to the great valley windows, then into the larger outdoors…..to discover a sky like I’ve never seen before in my life.
It lasted through dark of night, releasing brief shots of brilliant moon before going black again, and by dawn had become mist and rain.
Everything got a good blast of the elements, all of us better off for it, the senses pummeled and thrilled.
