The furious, howling wind

I get angry at the wind, but it’s such a frustrating anger because all I can do is shake my fist at the sky. Seems to me like this has maybe been the windiest year since we moved here in 2006. Really unhappy with the wind.

Last night’s blasts were impressive, though. Lots of damage, apparently. Here’s a felled tree by our house downtown:

The wind!

Last night's wind storm knocked this massive tree down at Cascade and Monument in downtown Colorado Springs.

This house is very lucky. Lucky, too, that there were no cars or other houses next door.
