Howling?

It's been horribly windy, snowy, icy, blizzard-y here these past few days. The wind has howled so loudly it's almost unsettling. That is, if you're the easily unsettled type. Me? I'm not, so I've enjoyed winter's last (hopefully!) big bang. Yes, I do mean bang. Crash, maybe. Yesterday afternoon we had a tree fall in our poplar grove. It snapped, cracked, then crashed.

*Sigh* I liked that tree.

But what to do when the wind comes crashing, er, calling? Read, of course!

I did not know that Michael Landon, Jr. wrote. Apparently he does. Very well, in fact. Yesterday I read One More Sunrise by Michael Landon, Jr. and Tracie Peterson. It is the story of a man who receives a very unexpected wake-up call. The story takes place in 1950s rural America. A heartwarming, emotionally gripping read, it was good enough that I forgot about the wind for a few hours. Definitely not a bad way to spend a stormy Sunday afternoon!

His dad was a great actor. It is howling here in Chicago too. :0
