    Little Wind V. Big Wind

    Autumn is supposed to be a good windy time of year. Not very where I live. I went for a walk in a park by the river the other day because it was a little breezy. Only just started to be cold enough to justify wearing a hat, so I was, and a big silk scarf. I debated leaving my...

    What an amazing morning!

    When I woke up, I had no idea it was going to be a windy day. The first thing I heard upon waking was the familiar, deep rumbling of the wind gusting against the side of my house. I practically jumped out of bed and pulled my blinds back to see the trees outside bending and...

    Lately we have had a lot of false hopes -

    forecasts saying winds 25-35mph with gusts to 50, but then where I live there's barely a breeze. Yesterday and today we were supposed to have a big storm, and we did get some snow, but it's mostly melted now and today it actually was breezy! I'm guessing the gusts were maybe 25...
