The fifth day

Weather continues warm in the bright sunshine and cold enough to make icicles in the shadows and the wind. That wind. It's strong and persistent enough to shred Carmine's flags and make people's eyebrows waggle. Strong enough to make people round here start shaking their heads and counting the days : "il quinto giorno, cavolo!" What cabbages have to do with it, though, I'll really never know.

Love the way they use cabbage in that interjection!

I know and dislike that kind of eyebrow-waggling, eye-watering wind.

@LadyFi : after five days I'm inclined to agree with you!

I wish I could waggle my eyebrows.

The wind direction is from Eastern Europe but could change soon.

@ LadyFi : I'm there, I like a challenge.
@Anonymous Weatherman : The wind dropped this afternoon, hope that doesn't mean rain! I could get to like sunny, dry weather.

Just hearing about that wind made me shiver.
