Blowin' in the Wind

"How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man ?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand ?
Yes, how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned ?
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

Yes, how many years can a mountain exist
Before it's washed to the sea ?
Yes, how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free ?
Yes, how many times can a man turn his head
Pretending he just doesn't see ?
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

Yes, how many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky ?
Yes, how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry ?
Yes, how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died ?
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind."
- Bob Dylan, Blowin' in the Wind

Yesterday the wind was insane, it was blowing uplake which it hasn't done since we've been here. The patio chairs tried to blow away but were stopped by the dog kennel.Several branches blew into the yard and I had to get the garbage can off the roof! That was an interesting experience, I didn't know it was the garbage can when I heard it and it scared the bejeezus out of me. I snapped this quick shot of the tree in the back yard before I left for work.
Today there is hardly any wind and it is snowing for real for the first time this year. Normally I would be unhappy about this but I don't have to work (or drive) until Friday and it is really pretty to watch over the lake, from inside with coffee, a couple of blankets and cuddly animals mind. I also think it will make for a pretty red against the snow shot for World AIDS Day when I convince myself to go take it.
Just for reference here is a picture of what this tree is normal like in relation to the horizon.
