Life in the A-Frame

December was hot here in Texas. I mean shorts and T-shirts hot. Finally a cold front was in the forecast, on Christmas Eve. The day went by and we waited. I think we may have even had the air conditioner on. By evening, dark clouds developed along the Northern horizon. That was the "Norther" we had been waiting for. We knew the front was close so we sat on the deck and waited for it. 

 We got to be outside the moment it arrived. Here, my daughter looks toward the North as the clouds pick up speed. Suddenly, we hear the wind before we feel it.
Then, we see the leaves blowing wildly all around us and the full force of the wind hits us. Within 5 seconds or so, it is too cold to sit outside without a coat. It was magic to us. And just as quickly, Christmas Eve was here.

The weather always amazes me, and it is to me the affirmation that God alone is in control. Man cannot control and accurately predict what God does with such simple yet awesome forces like the rain, wind, sun & all it encompasses.Your post shows this well. Magic! God's magic.
