A Weather Moment

This weather moment is brought to you by our backyard. The trees are being combed by a gusty wind, a rainstorm on its way. We're facing the North/Northwest corner of the yard. Jeff's sun sculpture has been turned around by the wind, so all you catch is a glimpse of the sun's back. You can almost hear the chainsaw being used by a neighbor to clear a small oak that had fallen across his driveway. This was yesterday afternoon.

During the late afternoon/evening, the wind blew a smattering of water-sodden branches out of the trees. Some of them were covered with beautiful sage-green lichen. None were over two inches in diameter, although several were over four feet long. Old oak trees seem to like being groomed by the wind.
