The April Foolish Wind

Jesus told Nicodemus that "The wind blows where it wishes. You hear the sound it makes, but you cannot tell where it comes from of where it's going."

Well, the wind has blown again today. I suppose it's an appropriate April Fool's joke of sorts.

As it has in the past, the wind coming across Lake Erie and up the rise that extends southeastward from the Lake has reach gusts of over 40 mph. The wind blows across the peak of our roof and creates a vacuum on the leeward side of the house. Up spring some of the shingles!

Torn away by the gusts of wind, these sprightly shingles spin heavenward, only to fall to earth, usually in our backyard.

We almost have the telephone number for the roof repair company memorized. They were last here in January. Oh, well. Every three months isn't too bad. Or is it?

Alas. I think I may truly be the "April Fool."
