Tonight I Love...

(source: Google images)
...the epic whirrrrring sound from the wind machines in the next-door orchard blocks.  I find them soothing.  Like a reminder that spring is nie at hand...granted temps may be dropping to a whopping 5 degrees (F) tonight, but I'm excited that it's time to even WORRY again about when too cold is "too cold" for those precious tree limbs.  Today is the first time they've been twirling since 2011 started.  So, in my world it's a BIG deal!  It may be cold now, but in a short while, those bad boys won't have to whirl at all.

Mr LKP loves them cause they remind him of being in the hangars and on the tarmac at the airport... they remind him of what he's certain it'll sound like all the time after he gets his pilot's license and his own little prop plane.  (Though I'll hand it to him, it DOES constantly sound like an airport tonight.  But I'm not sure the sound brings to my mind prop planes....I'm thinking more like helicopters.)

To each their own.  Tomato, tamahto.

Either way, I'm grateful for those noisy blades currently going approx 90 mph.  :)

I hope they keep the cold at bay.
I guess that's why it's so cold here.
Those things keep blowing the Artic cold this way!
It's sorta unfair, I'm freezing to death.

Oh, well. I'll take one for the team.
You're welcome!

I love your positive outlook! Today it is so snowy that I feel like winter is just starting instead of hopefully ending.

I'm one of those weirdos who loves winter because the more winter we have the greener the spring and summer is. We even lived in ALaska for awhile--LOVED it :0)

I love that you find them a source of comfort and soothing. I am afraid I wouldn't get past the irritation to see the good.

Well done!

Valerie said...

Warmish spring weather sure makes me giddy! With all this snow outside, I'm still waiting.

WISHING for some spring soon!!

We are supposed to get rain and maybe thunder storms to wash away our snow. Ahhh Spring in the Great Lakes. :)

Sorry to hear about the scuffle between your 2 brown dawgs. I have heard stories of male Chessies coexisting in a household for years until one day one of them eyeballs the other wrong and it is ON! We have been advised by more experienced Chessie owners to be careful not to let our male make eye contact with other male dogs, even though he is fairly laid back.
