    Just sitting in the trailer I can hear the wind tryin' too tear the tin roof off. It's freaking the cats out, two are hiding somewhere and the third is staying as close too me as he can. I wouldn't want too be driving a lifted K5 or Burb in this wind.

    On my way to work today I saw a ladder on the side of the road. Must have fallen off of a truck or something.

    We're on our 2nd day of 40+mph winds (higher gusts) up here a few hundred miles northwest of you....

    It's annoying as crap! My old house is so drafty it sounds like a tornado's tearing through the neighborhood.

    My DD has a 4" lift and driving to Mankato (30 miles) and back this morning was a major b!tch. Hope this lets up soon, even driving around town is annoying in this.

    Nothing like a lifted 'Burb in a 30 mile per hour crosswind.

    Thanks... I've been to Black Hills once and thought it was pretty nice too

    Billings is kinda Blah - but head south towards Red Lodge & Yellowstone and that changes really quick.

    It's been real windy here as well. 50mph+ gusts took the roof off a friend of a friend's house.

    The Black Hills are nice. When we went to Billings we had too stop and check out the Battle field (Custard) and in Wy. the Bighorn mountins.

    Seriously, this ain't no joke.

    Two days ago, I was on a traffic stop. I was slightly bent over handing the driver his warning for 35 mph over and the $500 citation for Failure to Offer a Peace Officer a Donut While in Possession, my butt was facing south. I did not know it at the time, but the chili cheese dogs sprinkled Costa Rican Fire Sauce made in Provo, Utah is not a good combination.

    Since I was unable to hold the pending eruption in, I went ahead and went with the flow and pushed that mother out. Unfortunately I blew out the seat of my pants with that bit of flatulance.

    That is was is causing this wind. Fortunately for human life, the frigid air over Anartica filters the noxious fumes, so it is safe now for human consumption, even though it is somewhat windy for awhile.
