Old Mother West Wind

We read to the Man-Cub almost all of the Burgess Bedtime Stories - and Old Mother West Wind and her children the Merry Little Breezes were prominent characters in the books - During a storm here the wind often shifts to all four directions in a matter of minutes - and it creates pretty patterns in the snow.

During the last blizzard - there were piles of snow and the Man-Cub and I sat in the living room looking out the window at the wind doing her sculpting - these little patterns would appear in the snow and the wind would swirl under them carving them just like I imagine the wind carves the Grand Canyon - then a whole chunk of the icy top layer would blow away the Man-Cub would cheer - it was great fun...
