Sunday April 21st 2013
Average rainfall where I live for the month of April
is around four and a half inches. Next month the average is around
five and three quarter inches. And this year we are doing OK for
rain. A North East Wind in April clears away cloud, turns the sky
very blue, and brings chances of frost. A South Wind brings
up warmth, and as it does so it offers a little protection from the Sun.
A West Wind gives chances of rain.
Today wind is from the East.
The air has a chill. The sky is very blue. The sun has a
brightness that requires blinking and moments of stillness when you
come inside otherwise you bump into things, and knock stuff over.
Then there are sunglasses, which are often difficult to find, but worth
going to the effort otherwise a glint from the breast of a Tree Swallow or a
dew drop will blind you momentarily.
