Windstorms are part of life here, but we don’t like them very much!
We try to prepare by “battening down the hatches” I tipped my patio chairs over last night, rather than see them go flying. So far, it hasn’t been too bad.
I guess a fun (?) thing about a windstorm is to see where the tumbleweeds end up. Some years, they pile as high as the tops of the fences and in the worst cases, rooftops. Those are bad years. Today, we have had winds in the 30 and 40 mph. range for most of the day. No horizontal snow and NO BLOWING DIRT! When the fall is dry and the wheat is small, dirt storms are just something that makes you feel sick. A good old cold, windy day like today is nothing we can’t handle in SW Kansas.
