Yesterday, the wind blew hard and gusted into the 40's for 18 hours. Today hasn't been so bad--less than 12 hours so far. The wind is really taxing the patience of the local populace. I know it's taxing OUR patience! We talked today about the possibility that the wind might blow forever here now, what with the volcano and so forth. I guess that means we might get blown away. Whatever! Cheers, jp
PS--Here is the forecast for tonight: "Tonight...Mostly cloudy. Scattered rain showers with possible snow showers and thunderstorms in the evening...Then a slight chance of rain showers and snow showers after midnight. Windy. Snow accumulation around 1 inch.
