...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. :)
