36: Gloves neededPosted: October 28, 2010
Brrrrrr! Today I went out and stood between the sun and the moon. The sun was at my back while I faced the moon, my body a barrier between the warmth of the light and the chill of the gusty winds. It was an interesting contradiction.
I wore my new winter hat for the first time. Note to self: If a winter hat is required, gloves are needed as well. My fingers were numb with cold by the time I finished my outdoor explorations.
The really gusty winds have finally arrived. The cold wind is huffing and puffing and threatening to blow a house down. It has a low-pitched sound to it, deep and strong. The trees are all creaking and swaying, the remaining leaves taking off in a long flight, riding the wind to the wherever it goes.
Stepping outside almost took my breath away. It’s been a while since we’ve had a day this chilly and winds this strong. It is exhilarating, energizing, skin-tingling kind of weather.
Since my morning walk, lake-effect clouds have started moving in. Showers will probably accompany the clouds. A little colder and we’d have our first snow.
