The wind changed yesterday

The cold north wind began in the middle of the day yesterday, to chase the clouds away. We awoke to a cold clear morning.

Reminded me of the Lord of the Rings.

In Seattle the north wind usually brings clear weather, in the winter it can be very cold, since the wind is coming from Alaska and Canada. A long time ago I wrote this description of how I loved the cold, very clean north wind when I was a child: Winter wind from the north.

Tonight’s last light

Sometimes the sunset makes you feel like you are on a different planet. This evening was one such.

As the sun went behind the clouds.
A little after true sunset the light went peachy.
The peachy light reflecting on the water just before the light faded out.
