The Wind Blows

Posted in Home by leahyetter on April 30, 2010

Raging winds whipped through Wheatland all day yesterday. On my way home from a shoot yesterday evening I watched the clouds change as fast as I turned the corners. I had to stop and capture this one.

When I pulled into our drive, I got out of my cozy car with Bob Dylan blaring “Hurricane” , to place panels over the cattle guard that keeps the cows where they need to be. The wind pushed me right into the panels and into the dirt and manure. I recovered quickly, no biggie, and parked my car in the drive.  I gathered my equipment in one arm load and our dinner for the night, a large veggie pizza from Pizza Hut, in the other hand. Patrick was holding the door open with a big smile welcoming me home when a huge gust of wind ripped the pizza right out of my hand and into the dirt and manure. It laid there face down, like me a few minutes prior, while tears started to stream down my face. This was the icing on top of a very long day. I have obviously not adjusted to dealing with the wind, but I’m not discouraged. I’m still learning.

      Yeah really!
      Patrick was able to save a couple pieces of pizza but it was mostly a gonner. Needless to say I went to bed early and the weekend so far has been much better. 🙂

    Oh no! I hear I missed one heck of a windy day/night. Our back gate was clear off the hinges when we returned home yesterday. I’m sorry the stupid wind stole your pizza – that’s a long way to drive smelling it in the car not to be able to enjoy it 😦
