The snow hadn’t yet started to fly this afternoon but the wind had kicked up something fierce once again on the Great Plains by late this afternoon and there was a damp chill in the air.
The grove of trees the herd was lined up against the other day was facing the wrong direction to help with tonight’s howling winds. So a few of them cozied up behind one of the loafing sheds this latest go round with Mother Nature.
As I ran out to snap a few photos, they all turned and looked at me, I think wanting to come over and say hello like they usually do. But all stood their ground, not wanting to give up the wind break for any other in the herd.
I smiled at them. And as the cold, bitter air sent a sharp pain through my front teeth, I scurried back inside, seeking warmth and shelter again myself.
