Today KTTC posted wind gust up to 55 MPH, it's crazy out there. Forget about trying to keep my hair in any style, watch out for run-away shopping carts and hold your car door when you get out to avoid dinging another car. There's a lot to think about when the wind traveling at 55 MPH.


  1. The wind has been crazy. But great clothes drying weather as long as laundry was clipped tight.

    1. I also like how it is drying the ground out, I do not like the slop!
