~ Is It Windy Where You Are? ~

Good grief is it ever windy today! A piece of trim actually blew off our house and husband had to retrieve it to nail back on once the winds die down, sheesh! I hate the wind!! I think it's so scarey! I can't imagine what it's like to go through a tornado and I hope I'll never know! I did however have a terrifying experience when I lived in Southern California, it was when the Santa Ana winds where blowing, I called them devil winds, they're horrible! One day I was watching tv and what sounded like an explosion occurred, the front window blew in, I was soooo scared! What had actually happened was an approximately 80MPH gust of wind blew a tree branch into the window and if I had been sitting on the sofa instead of the chair, I would have been hit full force with the broken window glass that was now all over the living room! Oddly enough one of my biggest fears has always been windows blowing in during those winds and it happened, UGH!! Is it windy today where you are?

I know what you mean about the wind, I now have a thousand of those little gumballs all over my yard. They are pretty to look at on the tree but they are killer for your feet. Good to know you're alright and there wasn't more damage.

Hugs,

WOW I know whatcha mean!
Very high winds here too-we were without elec all afternoon...Erie had high winds and it looked like a hurricane hit (on the evening news)- downed trees and elec poles broken right off! Big mess!
It's died down now-thank goodness.
