    I daresay you’ve developed your own theme for haiku,

    Windku – the elements and the avenger specific plot

    Love it.
    Sorry about the power though
    Ours also went out when the clock struck 12.00 at midnight ๐Ÿ™ƒ

      • Oh my word, the storm wreck havoc. Was this power outage due to Cyclone Freddy?
        I can imagine the cold.
        Take care Timothy.
        Keep warm.
        You are welcome.

      • We are far inland. It was part of wind blowing across the USA. A friend in Las Vegas, NV called on Tuesday to warn me that high winds were heading our way. He was right. The winds were brutal all day on Wednesday. There were a lot of power outages due to the wind.

      • Oh wow, winds leave so much destruction in their wake.
        I’m so happy for you that the power is restored.
        Stay safe.

    • No lights for 11 hours. It was cold and dark. Winds up to 100 mph in some parts of the state. Thanks, Shey.

      • God’s sake. That is awful. They get the power back on pretty pronto where we live but there was a carry on where Shetland which is a good sized population was without power for weeks at one point. Abso disgrace. It depends very much on where you live in Scotland re lengths of cuts.

      • When we have a power outage that effects Intel on the hill above us, the power comes back pronto. Since the power line that was broken is on our property and only affected 50 households, it was not much of a priority. The only reason they came to the property looking for issues was that I reported the outage and told the person who took that call we had a pumphouse that would freeze if the power wasn’t restored. Another issue was there were a lot of outages on Wednesday, and PNM has limited crew to repair outages. Before Intel built their first plant in Rio Rancho in 1981, we had regular power outages. Intel forced PNM to improve the power grid in our rather backwoods area.

      • They always have ads for linemen. I don’t know of any line women, but I assume there might be some. I rarely see a young lineman, either. The two that were out the other night looked close to my age, but they were probably 20 years younger. Either way, not spring line chickens, that’s for sure.

  2. We had high winds from the east and snow squall here yesterday. All that ind blew most of the clouds out by 8:00 PM, and I could see the crescent moon in the west. It got cold here. It was 22 this morning.

  3. It’s crazy how the winds stir up so much and what amazing photos. Wow, the show will be great just in time for my unbirthday. The birds are out in droves right now! ๐Ÿ’—
