And I’m not referring to Paddy’s hat either!
We have better things to do on Good Friday than shoveling out the van, especially when that snow is still coming at you, driven by 50 km/hr winds.
At least here in the little clearing the wind is not so bad.
Out at Torbay, though, the wind is active. Down in the cove it’s still not so bad.
That’s not the case out in Flatrock. The full fury of the wind is bearing on the shore.
The mobile phone’s little camera does not do justice to the surf pounding out against the rocks. The wind and waves toss tonnes of spray 30-40 metres into the air at a time.
Down at the foot of the harbour you get a taste of the spite that winter still holds for us.
“I’m still in control,” she’s saying. “Spring can wait ’til I’m good and ready.”
