Can't say I blame ya for getting out.
Well... It's been really weird weather in the sierra nevadas. Used to be indecisive until it decided to snow mercilessly. You could count on it. This is the 4th "nothing" winter for the sierra nevadas. This last one was basically nothing. A couple teeny storms at most. Didn't get brutally cold this past winter like the 3 before it... For those we had record lows from -14 to -22, and just moderate to severe winds if a bit long in duration. Right now? ...it's 43 out, and it's getting to be 60-70 in the daytime.
But the wind is what is really worrisome. Extended periods of high winds. We're 30-72 hour periods of winds over 110+ mph. Trees are snapping, falling over, and uprooting around here. Some of these massive trunks are even flying a short distance, too. Hitting cars, buildings, even people, yet I hear this pales in comparison to other parts of the country. So I figured ask someone whose been in the windy city and seen worse.
