Windswept. After fierce winds screeched through the Foothills last night, the detritus of countless porches, patios and driveways lay strewn across the lawns. Chairs were upside down. Grill lids lay yards from their rests. Plants had been pulled from their pots. Building materials sat far from all projects. Mayhem.
But even with all of that, the most remarkable thing was that most of the world looked unaffected. The houses still stood with their roofs and windows intact. Cars sat without tree limbs poking from the windshields. Small animals and children were safe indoors.
So, the wind came and shook things up, but once again, the world has righted itself.
