The Wind Is So Strong Here, It's Scary

We've had major wind here in western North Carolina as a cold front moves in. The gusts have been unbelievable and almost frightening as the trees bend dangerously and I wait for that ominous cracking sound. We lost power for a few hours (over 2700 homes were affected) but it's back on now. There's been a few power surges though and I sit here wishing the lights stay on. I hope the weather is better where you are. And some music, of course -

I had to go see where you lived. The scorching heat isn't due here for a couple of more months though there's no doubt it will come. :) The weather has been crazy all over the world.

We get pretty strong winds in SoCal, but not hurricane or tornado strength very often. It did hit around 80 mph a few months ago. Lots of people lost trees, but not much more damage was done.

It's been very gusty here for the last week on and off. It was hailing earlier today. Hope your power stays on.

I love your graphic. I'm glad that we don't seem to get as strong a wind as you. I hope your power doesn't get cut again.
