    Windy day at school: I had just gotten out of

    school for summer break. Since it was the last day, I wore a black silk shirt that was a few sizes too big for me, and a mid calf length white chiffon skirt. As I exited the building, the wind started to increase rapidly and I had a hard time keeping my clothes under control. My...

    Another windy wedding: Earlier today,

    I had to go to another one of my friend's weddings. Good for me, because the winds were forecasted to be around 65 MPH! I had worn a short sleeved sage blouse and a mid calf length black pleated satin skirt. When I had gotten there, the wind was blowing really hard. It sent my...

    The Best Day Ever Part I

    I've just had the experience of a lifetime! I'll start by saying it's been far too long since we've had any substantial wind in my area. Sure, we've had a few days were it's gusted up to 30 miles an hour, but nothing too noteworthy to tell you about. Well, last night as I was...

    OMG! We have enjoyed some seriously strong

    winds recently and taken full advantage when not accompanied by the rain. The scene is set. I'm ( sadly ) sat alone in my car, parked up right on the seafront watching people being blown this way and that by the promised gale force winds, the car rocking in the ferocious gusts...

    The weather said yesterday,

    we're going to get winds 100+ MPH with gusts of 120+ MPH!!! I didn't know if my house is going to keep standing. Of course, I was also shaking with excitement. I was just outside, fighting against the wind. I was wearing a black pleated chiffon maxi skirt and an oversized...

    Best day ever!!! So the wind was forecasted to

    be about 90+ MPH yesterday, so I decided to wear the new dress I bought a few days ago. To describe it, it is a strapless black and silver silk dress with an ankle-length pleated skirt. I wore my hair up, not really wanting it to blow around. It was definitely a struggle walking...

    The first day of this new year did not

    disappoint me when it came to the wind! We were having strong winds blowing all through the night, and all I could think about was getting outside to enjoy it. Unfortunately, it was a little too cold for me to head out so I stayed inside to listen and watch. The trees outside...

    Finally! We are having a good solid storm,

    and I managed to sneak outside for a bit! I was wearing light exercise trousers, not quite windbreaker nylon, but little more than that. I had a fake-leather coat that went about to my knees, and didn't have time to grab a hat, but I did get a scarf over my head and tied under...

    We had been warned of severe gales with gusts

    exceeding 70 mph, and I knew this was going to be one of the best experiences of our lives. We had reached our favourite remote spot, an old ruined ford where the wind blows in off the sea and gets sent in all directions. As we sat in the car we could hear and feel the strength...

    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...

    Hi: In my town, The last two days (yesterday
