Winds

From a soft, caressing breeze to wild and dangerous cyclonic forces, our Earth is touched daily by the force of nature called Wind. The horrific news of over 200 people killed by tornadoes in the Southern states on Wednesday demonstrates our helplessness against this power. We can attempt to harness it for alternative energy sources, for recreational wind sailing or kite flying. Picturesque windmills, gentle windchimes and children's pinwheels exhibit the softer side of Wind's power.

I read with great interest a post on a blog I have been following for sometime now. Please click on this link:
Broom With a View   for a wonderful post called "Wind Spirit" by AmethJera.

Wind can be healing, invigorating, helpful (laundry hung to dry in the breeze saves electricity, and smells so good!) as well as irritating (forget your beautifully styled hair in a stiff breeze) and of course dangerous. Never take wind for granted; it is a Force to be reckoned with.


Oh, and P.S. I forgot to turn on the television this morning, so I missed the Royal Wedding. I did see some photos on line, and thought the Bride looked lovely, the Groom dashing. And wow, a lot of unbelievable hats! I assume it was not too windy, because some of those hats could have become deadly weapons in a gusty  breeze.

The Brits and their hats :-) :-)

I´ve heard and read about those terrible tornadoes and I feel so sorry for those whose lives are destroyed now!

I do hope nothing like that reaches You!

Christer.

Christer, we are normally in a tornado area, but in the last couple of years, there have been tornadoes spotted. I think the climate change is part of that reason. We do have a basement!

I meant to say we are normally NOT in a tornado area.

We're not a tornado area either, but lately we have had a few. Never thought I would see a tornado in Brooklyn, New York.
