Weather – Windy

Just a bit of weather for ya all.

We have a wind warning going on. As far as I’m concerned, we really don’t get that much wind here, though most that have lived here for some time would disagree. I enjoy the wind, good strong wind, the type that can knock you off your feet. We really don’t get that much of it here, not like we did back in Michigan anyway.

Here is the warning.
