Out of the Blue

I feel pretty lucky to be online this morning after a tornado celebrated yesterday's Earth Day by touching down in our general area on Wednesday. As the saying goes, I'd seen this movie before, and I immediately suspected a tornado when the wind suddenly kicked up waves on the pond, which is normally as still as a, well, pond. As I watched, I saw a chunk of a nearby tree break loose, even through the eye of the tornado was actually miles from here. News reports yesterday confirmed the tornado. The power did go out, but unlike the damage from last year's twister, it popped right back on again, hence my gratitude. This also gave a newfound appreciation of Ms. Duck after questioning the wisdom of the spot where she nested. We checked, and her choice turned out perfectly suited to protecting the eggs from all the wind, rain, and hail the storm wrought. Clever girl!
