Locust, West Wind, and the IRS

Ex. 10:19 And the Lord changed the wind to a very strong west wind, which caught up the locusts and carried them into the Red Sea. Not a locust was left anywhere in Egypt. (NIV)

We don't have any locust we need to get rid of, but we've got the west wind that would do it. We have one of those little decorative windmills in our front yard. It is spinning so fast that the blades look like a solid piece of metal. Last night the weather man said we could have gusts over 50 mph. He knew what he was talking about. The fifth wheel is rocking, my sinuses are hurting, and my nerves are already on edge. Rick is needing to make some repairs on our rig, but to do so he will need to loosen the underbelly and roll around on the ground. Since we have been home it has been too cold or too wet. Today it is warm and dry, but if he pulled the underbelly off today it would be like the locusts in the day of the Egyptian plagues. We might have to gather it from the Red Sea to get it put back on.

I'd love to be out and about today, enjoying the warm temperatures, but trying to stand up outside is a bit of a challenge. So, I guess I'll stay in and try to work on our taxes. (Makes me think of the locust that took everything the hail left behind.) If only the west
wind could take care of the IRS!
