A crow.

A stormy day. The big jets seem louder and slower, working against the wind. Gulls crab sideways, blow backward, then give up.

Over there, dark and defiant, branch-surfing among stubborn leaves, is a crow. It is probably enjoying itself.

I'm sure he's thinking about new experiments he can conduct on your roof...

As long as he stays over there...

We have had thunder and lightning off and on for the past 24 hrs., as well as sheets of rain, hail, and high winds that killed some poor guy when a pine branch dropped on him. I will be happy when we're back to just plain old boring grey skies, with the occasional shower or 4. You're right, that crow is probably up to something.

The worst of this weather has been passing south and east of us. An endless stream of rain & wind seems on the way though, so we may get hit worse next week. Very sad about the fellow killed by the falling branch.
