“Like a red morn that ever yet betokened,
Wreck to the seaman, tempest to the field,
Sorrow to the shepherds, woe unto the birds,
Gusts and foul flaws to herdmen and to herds.”
~ William Shakespeare (Venus & Adonis)
A red sunrise Tuesday morning proved to be the calm before the storm.
Last night there was thunder, lightning, rain and gale-force winds.
Windows rattled, loose iron clanged, and bins were upturned, sending wayward recyclables tumbling down the street.
Behind it has followed a cold, wet and windy Wednesday, in true mid-winter form.
(Don't know where spring has scampered off to).
Winter Wednesday is hosted by Hazel Dene.
