'High Winds out of the West, Today!'

Last night, I went to sleep listening to strong winds blowing outside! I was just happy to be snuggled up in my warm bed, instead of being outdoors. This morning, we are still getting some powerful gusts, that seem to be coming out of the west. Our weather man's forecast said this would happen and end up bringing in some colder temperatures. This isn't a surprise to me, as we are about to head into the second week of December. Michigan usually has at least a few inches of snow, by this time each year.

Yes, those winds are coming out of the west and sweeping right across the Northern states!

Wow, those are some really tall trees. I wish I had some that tall, my elms which I thought were kinda tall would look like dwarfs compared with these. It's colder here as well but I am glad we are not getting the winds just yet. One weather service thinks it might snow here tomorrow but I think that is a load of kadunk.

@rebelann Michigan's U.P. gets hit a lot more severely, each winter. We don't get even 1/2 the snow, that they get!

I am looking at your impressive trees. I have not seen a snowflake since 2012 in my place, and I would prefer to not see any. It is nice to have snow for Christmas, but it quickly turns to a disaster here : last time the city had not even sand to put in the streets, and people do not know how to drive on snow in this area.

@topffer We are so use to driving on snow covered roads, in Michigan. For about five months of the year, those clouds will give threats of a heavy snowfall.

It is cold and windy in our Chicago suburb too. The leaves are flying through the air.

That's what I've noticed, too. Those oak leaves are blowing all over the neighbor's yard!

I see on the news that your area is getting a blast of cold weather coming. Guess winter has decided to show up afterall.

Yes, you're absolutely right! It's colder with that strong wind blowing, plus snow is in our forecast tomorrow. This is usually what we experience, the first week of November.

The hardest part of the cold for me is wind. I love your trees.

I've seen that snow coming across from Minnesota and either going north into Canada or across the UP. We don't have any yet, but there were flurries this morning. We had those high gusts yesterday too. The forecast I read said 33 degrees for the temp and 32 mph for wind. Everything was blowing here. This morning I woke up to 21 degrees and 13 wind chill. The gusts were calmed down, but still a bit windy, just not like yesterday. I dressed warm for my trip to the pool. I have my thermal shirt on under my sweater.

I have noticed tonight that the wind has picked up here, I wonder if it is the same front coming our way. We may get some snow by the end of the week,
