Leaning with the Winds of Time

Leaning with the Winds of Time

As the marvelous Coffee Creek supercell rolled off the mountains east of Great Falls, it already provided a spectacular backdrop to another abandoned edifice a hundred yards away.   Some indefinite time, many years ago, this structure was abandoned to the whim of the winds, a fate so common to homesteaders’ structures up and down the Great Plains.  Countless west winds since leaned this one in the same direction of travel as the supercell whose outflow would push it at least a tiny measure further to an inevitable fate of fallen rubble.
