Winter Winds

"...summer has gone

Wind high and cold, the sun low, short its course

The sea running high.

Deep red the bracken; its shape is lost;

The wild goose has raised its accustomed cry,

Cold has seized the birds' wings;

Season of ice, this is my news."

- Irish poem, 9th Century

I have one word for the weather here at the beach...Brrrr!

A gale force wind has been blowing from the north-northwest for almost a week!  First frost as arrived too....but it isn't the cold, though sub-freezing is unusual here in early December.
But it's not the cold....It's the wind.

I fnally got out my mittens...

I suppose a winter coat is next? Darn!

"...And night is long

And cold is strong

In bleak December."

- Christina Giorgina Rossetti, The Months
