The Wind Bucket

by tim bradford on May 23, 2006

We keep a big dirty plastic cement bucket in our back garden to tell us which way the wind is blowing. If it’s up near the gas tank we know it’s a westerly. If it ends up at the edge of the gorse then that means cold northerlies. My father in law is away for a couple of weeks. When he gets back I know the first thing he’ll say is “Where is my big dirty plastic cement bucket?” and I’ll point to the centre of a mass of gorse bushes and shout “Northerlies!”
I’ve taken to thinking that each wind has a different accent. South westerly is a Corkman and northerly a strong Ulster voice. “There will be NO playing in the garden today!” says the Rev. North Wind.

Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
