The North Wind




Boreas was loose last night, with instructions to charge my batteries. A wet wind howled through broken windows and lightning flashed across the sky, but I awoke to fully restored power and a wind speed of 6.5 amps on a good gust. However, it has been colder and drafty, so all available polythene has been deployed over the windward windows to stop paper flying around everythere in an unpleasant circling mixture of rain and still dry dust. Rain drops from the ceiling are playing a discordant tune on bucket and tin cans.
