Wow, it is windy here today. It’s so windy that Frank took the trash out earlier, and he’s already had to go retrieve items that have blown away. A few minutes ago, I looked outside, and one box and one garbage bag were stuffed up under Frank’s car. Oh, and earlier when we carried out the Christmas tree, I saw the most gigantic tumbleweed I’d ever seen — about twice the size of the ones in west Texas. Really, it was the size of a tree, not a bush. It ended up firmly planting itself next to our fence. Better there than the car, anyway. The wind is loud, too.
