Wind, please blow away

11 05 2022

Seneca, like all the rest of us, is really, really, REALLY tired of the wind.

We’ll want some breeze when the atmosphere grows still, and the gnats start to swarm and the heat starts to overwhelm. … But right now? We are so over the gale-force winds that suck out the moisture we don’t even have to give and fill our sky with dust.

Earlier this week, the wind screamed like a banshee, all day – working indoors, I found myself slowly ‘shutting out’ the sounds, so I wasn’t interrupting work, every so often to race out, believing some living thing was screaming/howling in injury or fear – – it died down in the late afternoon, and I found this queer ‘roaring’ in my mind, via my ears – – alas, after wondering about it, etc., I realized, “Hmmm….how LOUD the silence is, once the wind shuts up’ – It was a very odd experience and observation of my my own brain’s adjusting to ‘what is’ and the signals that seemed confused over and over, on what to alert me to and what not too – still pondering upon it – πŸ˜€

It’s pretty ferocious, and I wonder how the critters are handling it. It’s neverending and must, at some point, be as anxiety-inducing in them as in us.

…on the other hand, between mud and wind, guess spring insects coming out with warming temps aren’t picking at ’em much – πŸ˜€ Me when grousing over the wind and lack of moisture, and trying to ‘find the positive’? Hmmm….may not have to deal with them durn mosquitoes this year….. πŸ˜€

We are really really really tired of the wind, too. It is blowing small dunes around the old windows of this old house.

All I can say is – amen, TJ! SO tired of the wind, day after day after day, sucking the life out of everything…including us. And as you said, we have no moisture to give. Wonder where the water table is these days – hundreds of feet deep by now? And that air. Must be half dirt by now.

Fortunately, the air always seems to settle itself, but it’s apocalyptic when it’s at its worst. 😦 I saw a Durango Herald article that confirmed what we’ve suspected – the spring winds actually are worse (more?) and later this year. Argh! I’ll be upset about the heat soon enough, but gosh, some respite from the wind would be lovely just now.
