not georgia any more!

A strong steady wind came up this morning and went on all day. I was wondering why I felt so tense and stressed this morning, then it dawned on me: in Georgia, to have a wind this strong for so long in hot weather means something very very bad is coming....a hurricane or tropical storm, or maybe a wicked bad cold front with tornadoes and hail.....But Isabel reassured me, here, it means nothing much at all....maybe, just maybe it means the first hint of fall coming on! So I went on, preparing the grapefruit spot, and picking up windthrown pears (possibly mature enough to cold-store and ripen!) and the early, buggy acorns to smash and dry for chicken feed.....
