up to 90 km/h and higher I'm sure.
We almost never hear sirens in our quiet little neighborhood, but they were heard time and time again all day long.
I am reading in the Book of Job and this stood out to me. Young Elihu is discussing the power of the Almighty God and he says in chapter 36:29, " Who can understand the spreading of the clouds and the thunder that rolls forth from heaven?". Then in 37:9,"The stormy wind comes from it's chamber and the driving winds bring the cold."
The thunder could be heard all night long, rolling and cracking. But only the wind was left on Tuesday morning when I woke up.
The driving winds broke a large limb off of our Mountain Ash in the front yard and blew tiny limbs everywhere. I spent quite a bit of time tearing and cutting the limb apart so we can dispose of it, it was a huge limb. It didn't disfigure our tree, which I am so glad for, I love that tree!
I braved the winds to get pictures, I walked down to the river, a ten minute walk from my house. Funny thing, I was the only one out walking! I wonder why! I was keeping a close eye on the trees around me.
After braving the winds in order to get pictures, I got home, quickly downloaded all of the photos, then somehow I deleted the whole folder of photos that I had just taken! The photos that I am showing you today are from last summer, but they are the exact same area that I was in yesterday. I wasn't able to capture the power of the wind in the photos yesterday anyway, so these will do. It is a little windy today, but the wind has died down considerably, thank goodness.
I wish you all a lovely, sunshiny day!
