Here in Wyoming, the winds are particularly fierce. I hate it when they say it was “a little breezy today”, when it actually got up to gale force winds (80 mph+). They have a saying here about it: “In other places, they measure strong winds by how much of a logging chain it’ll stand straight out; in Wyoming, they measure it by how many links it snaps off”.
Today, they are predicting about 60 mph winds. There is a place I pass every day that has big 18 wheeler tow trucks and a large yard. I can always tell how windy it’s been by how many truck “carcasses” they bring in.
Does anyone else get these kinds of killer winds?
