Charles Burchfield, Journals, October 30, 1917

Before midnight (last night) a tall cold white noon; Early in morning, a terrific hailstorm startles us – (deafening roar, strange black houses) lightening and thunder –

Morning a light horizon; wild in terrific gusts, whirls up leaves furiously from peach trees – 

Charles E. Burchfield,  Oct 30, 1917
