Stormy weather

A strange noise and then a very loud bang. Some screams. My neighbours' roof just blew off.
The wind is crazy out there.
Just got home from a meeting, barely able to walk against the direction of the wind. My umbrella joined its many twisted sisters in a garbage can, to be immediately blown out of it.
Not much rain most of the time, but the fierce blasts of wind coming from changing directions play havoc with sub boilers, antennas, and yes, roofs.

Perhaps that better to listen to then the news broadcast on the Winograd commission...

Jaffa, winter 2008

Umbrella's seem to be trendy nowadays.

My umbrella also looks worse for wear, with one spoke hanging at all angles. Don't have the heart to throw it out just yet - we've become attached:)

Luke said...

Real men dont use an umbrella.

ee said...

God forbid, Luke.
Someone might think them gay.

J.P. said...

Well EE, this spoke of your umbrella gives people like me (1,96 m) the shivers.

Luke said...

Stereotype thinking E.E., you city- people should be a little more open to the rest the nation.
24 hrs a day between concrete and in the middle of car fumes is not good for the brain.

Yudit, why did you stop with One Image A day?

ee said...

Luke, I'm not sure if you'd recognize irony if it fell on your head.
Maybe you do need that umbrella, but not for rain.

btw, I grew up in a rural place, not that it matters.

Perdix said...

Ee, you are a former hill-billy?

ee said...

Perdix,

I was born in a big city, and later moved to a moshav in the North of Israel.

Perdix said...

What did/do your people grow?

Luke said...

Cabbage, I suppose.

ee said...

Well, Luke, I'm sure you're intelligent enough to know what happens when you assume.

Perdix, the moshav is a cooperative, with a mixture of agriculture and industry.

Luke said...

Deer E.E., I have no clue what happens when I assume, did have a look in the drawers of my writing desk, had another look in the mailbox and even have removed the cushions of the sofa (Danish design) to have a look for the unexpected.

No cabbage?, what about carrots.

ee said...

Try parsley.

J.P. said...

I like to grow unusual vegetables and flowers.
EE, you are familiar with borecole Redbor F1 and and red/pink Brussels sprouts?
And how about pumpkins and guords like Tonda Pandana, Autumn Wings and Yellow Croockneck?

Luke said...

Within good circumstances barley gives a good yield.
