Welcome to Word of the Week! Stay tuned for a new word each Wednesday to amp up your nature vocabulary!
This week you can enjoy not just the cherry blossoms, but also the wind soughing between the trees if you listen closely!
When you hear and feel very loud soughing make sure to avoid walking in densely tree-covered areas as branches and even entire trees can fall! During last week’s windstorm we definitely heard the sough (and howl) of the wind between trees in the forest and our city streets. Unfortunately, High Park had a number of trees topple over, but the city is working on managing the wreckage.
