Wild winds

Even though we are sheltered by the hilltop woods and the side of the river valley, the wind is wailing, and I have skipped the evening dog walk.  I did venture out with the hounds, well wrapped up and  waterproofs flapping madly at lunchtime, but poor Rosie Roo with her naked tummy was shivering despite her coat, and the trees were roaring and flailing in a way that is not normal for trees, unless they are assaulting Orthanc.  The fields are soaked and running with mud, and there are streams everywhere in places where there should not be streams.  The roads are even fuller of potholes than usual and the potholes are full of water too.  

At least the river has not flooded this time, but it all feels very gloomy.

Assaulting Orthanc
Well, you have previously theorised that Saruman hangs out just along the valley from you, haven't you? And you had crebain a few weeks ago, moving fast and not with the wind? And your local bridge is closed, rather as if a wizard stood upon it and smote it asunder while ordering the Balrog of Devon not to pass?

Re: Assaulting Orthanc
All of this is true, and we also have a strange, big-eyed, thing wandering around the place demanding fishhhhhhh.

I wonder if the Moria Highways Agency managed to claim against Gandalf's insurance.

Strange, big-eyed things
So what was Yama's true name and true appearance before he got corrupted by the lure of the One Ring and turned into a drippy, slime-filled thing?

That's no way to talk of philmophlegm ... ;-)
