Day 12 – Wind Anxiety

I don’t know what to write about today. Not really, anyway.

I guess we ended up with 10-20 MPH winds, with a few good guts thrown in.  My computer desk faces the back patio where the remaining part of the offending tree stands.  Every time the wind kicked up, I would stare at the tree.  Watching its limbs bob and bounce in the wind.  Then it would look like the tree was moving.  I know ( I HOPE!) it was just my imagination. Freaking myself out.  I would have to look away, lest I break out in a panic.

The wind would get the tarp and plastic going in a racket.  Our normal nervous needs a puppy Prozac Bassett hound could care less about the noise.  Really Fred? The slightest indication of thunder or gods forbid hunting season, and he is losing his shit.  Wind blowing and making a shit ton of noise coming through the gap in the tarp….NOTHING!

On the other hand, our fearless St. Bernard was getting all wide-eyed at the offending sounds.  Can’t say I blame her, I was right there with her.  But I had to stay or at least appear calm for her sake.  She pretty much hid behind my computer chair for most of the afternoon. And whenever the wind would kick up and the noise got loud, her eyes would get big as saucers.  Poor girl.

Looks like it might have finally passed.  With maybe a slight breeze now.  I’ll be so glad when that tree is down and the repairs are made.  I’m also glad I didn’t see it come down and through the roof/ceiling.  I’d probably be a basket case if I had.

    I’m so glad there wasn’t more damage. My dog gets super scared when the wind blows here. She does not like it at all and it’s never as bad as you have experienced there. I can only imagine you and your dog’s nervousness

      I figure it’s going to take some time for us humans to not be on edge every time the wind gusts up. I’ve been through some wind, I used to live in FL so hurricane season and then GA with its tornado season….But this….this was different. I can’t explain how, it just was. I think I’d rather have hurricane season LOL.
