More high winds last night led me to expect more trees down, but I only saw this one, which must have fallen when the other one did. It looks like it put a pretty good dent in the roof!
These persistent high winds have been crazy and scary. Up north of Boulder, they've sparked some wildfires and forced evacuations.
In town, it hasn't been too bad. Windy, yes, but warmish, too.
Speaking of fires and walking, I spotted something new today while out with Sophie.
What first caugh my eye here was the line of tiki torches suspended from a couple of poles in someone's back yard. I looked at them for a few seconds, trying to puzzle out their purpose. I thought maybe they were part of some Burning Man-type assemblage.
Then all the disparate parts of the structure assembled themselves in my head and I knew what I was looking at.
Yes, it's a homemade trapeze! The structure is anchored by lines bolted to surrounding trees and buildings, and it has a big trampoline under it.
How's that for ambition? I wonder whether the motivation was simply fun, or whether the builder belongs to the circus (or hopes to). Those tiki torches are a nice touch.
