Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Weather Man

Without fail, he rises, pants and shirts himself, then - flashlight on - he treks across barn yard to grove's edge where it stands: Tacked to deep-grained fence post years ago, it keeps its vigil -- marking falling temperatures with mercury precision. Force of habit, now, in winter, after burn piles of freezes past, farmer turns collar up, squints into the unpredictable bitter blow, knowing curled color of wind-chill damaged leaves, wide-split bark of extended cold. He keeps his ritual well-rehearsed, like planting on good signs or prayer before harvest, recording, during city's sleep, unexpected drops in red.
