    It's another ferociously windy day here. I woke up this morning to my curtains cracking in the wind blowing in my balcony door. I got out of bed and slid it closed and as I did I saw the trees outside swaying greatly in the gusts. I got butterflies in my stomach. I decided before...

    It's breezy today! Gusts up to 25 mph!

    It isn't very warm, and I wore a thin silk blouse but had to wear a sweater. To make up for it I wore a scarf. When I first got out of the car, I had it wrapped around my neck once, so the center of it was against my throat but the two ends hung down in front, too. I could not...

    i just had a thought.

    i think most of us here are familiar with the Beaufort Scale, right? The one used to estimate the speed of the wind based ono the effects it has on things, or on the sea. i was thinking we should put together our own based on the effects it has on skirts, hats, scarves, etc...

    I'm actually a little scared this time, guys. I've been in strong winds before, but this is amazingly intense. I've already lost two small trees in my backyard and the gate on my fence snapped off. My windows are rattling, my chimney is howling; we've already had a recorded gust...

    I used to think sun in the sky was making noise

    in the daytime when I was kid. It actually was a noise of fans that houses were making during the meal time. When houses are crowded like they are in Japan, fanning noise can be pretty big. Wind story reminded of this.
