Darn wind!

Post by jedwa.. » Tue, 12 Aug 1997 04:00:00



        We had some heavy wind this weekend. I thought my fence was
going to blow down, but it didn't. I was splitting some lilies when
I felt a large gust of wind and heard a crash come from the pond. As
I turned I could see a pile of rubble fall into the pond. I had
placed a ceramic vase on top of my waterfall. I have had this vase
for about 15 years, ever since a friend made it for me. The vase
had some *** willows in it. The wind blew the vase over, it came
crashing down on top of another piece of pottery that was shaped
like a fish. Both of them broke and continued to fall farther down
and when they hit the they chipped a piece of marble off of the edge
of the waterfall. Now all this mess fell into the pond. Darn wind!
In a matter of 2 seconds I lost 2 pieces of pottery and a chip
in my marble. Darn wind!.
        Luckily none of the sharpe edges caused any damage to the
liner or my fish.

Sounds awfull! I am truly sorry you lost so much BUT you can allways get
your own back on the wind by installing a windpump to run some of your
water through a fountain etc

Make the wind work for YOU...   THEN see if the wind isn't sorry for
trashing your vases and marble! ;)

Best wishes, Jim
