"He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet. And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind." (Psalm 18:9,10)
The winds show the mighty power of God. He rides upon them, and He has visited our area with them quite frequently lately. Yesterday we were sitting and working at the computer when the power suddenly blinked on and off several times and then went out. In just a couple of minutes, a powerful wind storm came up. Since the worst of it was to the northwest of us, I went out and took a video. These winds blew only for about 15 minutes, but they may have been as high as 70 miles an hour, and those winds wreaked a lot of havoc on their path in those 15 minutes. Below are some pictures and a video of that powerful wind. Sorry about the quality of the pictures. They were taken out of the video.
The noise you hear at the beginning of the video is the wind. However, the noise you hear at the end of the video is a riding lawn mower, not the wind. :-) The young man mowing our lawn was NOT being foolish. The windstorm came up suddenly and caught us all by surprise. He said it almost blew him right off the mower.
