March lions and lambs

I don't recall whether March began ferociously or calmly, but the middle of the month is definitely lionish. We had rain and thunderstorms last night, not too ferocious in either instance, although a lot of rain all told. Today has brought boisterous high winds. We are under a warning with predictions of gusts up to 60 miles per hour (96.6 km/hour) or so. The winds are rattling at our top-floor corner apartment's windows. There are two small retention ponds off to the side of the complex, one of which was almost empty yesterday but is now full after the rain last night. It is fascinating to watch the wind gusting across the waters. Even the ducks have fled. The power-generating windmills on the horizon are busy doing their work.

At least it is sunny!

Tomorrow for St. Patrick's Day the forecast is for light rain with temperatures near freezing. They had been saying we might have snow, but at the moment, the white stuff is off the table.
