Wind

The temperature outside on the thermometer reads 66 degrees.

The winds are gusting at 50 mph and sustaining at 25-30!
If it isn't nailed down, it will be gone.

There is an advisory from the NOAA that warns about being gusted off the road...or flying lawn furniture and other debris.

The electric fence is ponging and swaying. Mules and horses are laying down to get out of the winds.

When things calm down tonight, it looks like I'll have to take a perimeter walk and make sure no trees or heavy limbs came down on our fence.

I am not on the ridge top where it is much worse.

So it looks like a good day to freeze the morel mushrooms from yesterday and read a book, safe and sound inside my house!
"THESE WINDS WILL MAKE DRIVING ON
NORTH-SOUTH ROADS DIFFICULT...
BLOW
LOOSE ITEMS LIKE LAWN CHAIRS
AND GARBAGE CANS AROUND AND CAN BREAK

BRANCHES OFF WEAKENED OR
UNHEALTHY TREES.

We have been having the same type of weather here in South Central Iowa. At least you have a surplus of morels. We have Frost warnings tonight
