Snap, Crackle, Pop: Watching the Creek from My Window- Part 1

When I was contemplating a title for this post, the words snap, crackle, and pop came to my mind. These were the mascots for Rice Crispies when I was growing up. They probably still are. The three words seemed like a fitting title.

A few days ago, at dusk, I heard a loud crack outside my window. I don’t remember if I looked outside then or not.

I rarely wear my glasses now, since I often am wearing a mask. And besides, it was getting dark. So even if I had looked outside, I probably would not have seen what had happened.

Two days later, when I looked out the window during the day, it was obvious what had caused the loud cracking sound. A large tree had fallen. It had broken into numerous pieces and landed in what will become a creek once there is more rain.

  1. What a beautiful view from your window. On a stormy day like today, I wonder if you’ll hear more trees falling. It’s certainly nice to be inside, safe and warm.


    1. It was here big time yesterday. The wind got really heavy for a while. When something hit the side of the building it was a bit scary. It was probably only a branch. It rained heavily last night. At times I couldn’t tell if it was rain or wind but I didn’t get up to look.


I would love to hear from you!
