Cotton Candy

“It howls and haunts
Goes where it wants
It’ll taunt you and get under your skin
No there ain’t no shelter
From the Wyoming wind”
-Mark Ereli

Highways that surround our little town are closed today.
The wind is howling a hurricane force that folks in coastal towns are very familiar with.

The dishes are rattling in the cabinets. Birds can barely make it to the neighboring limb. As soon as a horse or cow gets a bite of grass in their mouth, it blows out as they start to chew.

It’s enough to make you crazy. Really.

So fortunately I can find images on the hard drive that remind me of my peaceful hikes around the ranch.
I remember capturing these cattails on a calm and sunny day a couple weeks ago. The hairless ones look like corn dogs to me. The furrier ones look like cotton candy.
mmmmmm cotton candy.

See, I warned ya… Crazy. Please don’t judge.

      Thanks! I like them too…as long as they aren’t plugging up the ditches or ponds. 🙂
