It is windy today. Not the average Northern Great Plains wind, but windy even for us. Mom picked me up from work today and while she was waiting she watched a mattress go through the intersection in front of her followed shortly thereafter by two people trying to chase it down. Another older gentleman just waved goodbye to his hat when he stepped out of his vehicle and the wind swirled it off his head and into the sky. The 6ft wood fence I built last summer is getting it's first good test and holding up so far except for one gate that got blown in when it should normally swing out. When the wind first hit it sounded like a jet going over our office building and the building even shook a bit (it is a 3 story brick building).
The weather service in Glasgow says it is blowing nearly 40 miles per hour sustained with gusts at 60 miles per hour. Hopefully we can return to our normal wind soon.
