AND THEN IT BLEW AWAY

Can you see the snow-capped peaks in the distance? Among them is Pyramid Peak at the south end of Lake Tahoe.

Young tomato plants recover from a windy experience.
It may not be obvious in the picture above, but what I'm trying to show is the Sierra Nevada mountains east of Singing Frog Farm. Thanks to the wind they are clearly visible today, and the air smells fresh and new. So while wind may be miserable -- I'm glad I wasn't pedaling in it like those cyclists who speed by my place yesterday on the Amgen Tour of California -- it leaves clean air in its wake, like after a rain but not quite as good. The downside is apparent in the other photograph, where a tray of young tomatoes recovers from a near-death experience caused by a full two days of relentless winds.
