Random - wind

17 posts in this topic

The wind around here is crazy, trucks were getting blown all over the highway on my way in this morning.

The power keeps going out every half hour and taking out the network. Fun. I blame the wind.

For some reason it's 11AM and the whole lab smells like fried chicken, but nobody knows why, or where the chicken is. Not sure if I can blame the wind for that one.

Shaping up to be a strange day.

Anybody else experience crazy winds?

Very windy here as well.

The odd part is that they tend to be sustained longer than usual, steadily blowing at a near-constant speed.

Apparently I spoke too soon on the wierd day.

A coworker went home to work from there where the power outages won't be as much of an interruption. He's very thankful now that he made that decision, because the wind blew around the power line running to his house and caught his roof on fire. He detected it early enough to save the house. Probably if he'd stayed here he would have come home tonight to a burned down house.

Oddly enough it rained very little (1 out of 3 days) when I was in Seattle in mid-November.

Well, speaking of wind, it's back at my house with a vengeance. And the rain is horrible, as well.

TV's out. Obviously, the weather's to blame.

It was crazy here, I guess a transport truck got blown over on a bridge. Siding was ripped of my house and neighbours fences are blown down.

In the Toronto Star today, there was a picture of a Volvo V40 wagon practically folded in half from a big tree landing on it. Thankfully it was parked with nobody inside. So Volvo, you have a rollover test, where's your tree-falls-on-car test? :AH-HA_wink:

Think positive!

It's a chance for each and every poster here to put up a wind turbine and collect all that free energy. If you get a Volt, you can connect your Volt directly to the turbine at night and get a charge out of it. :AH-HA_wink:

ahh, after a night of tornadoes, bad wind, and thunderstorms all's clear down here on the southern front, although being out on the front deck when the tornado siren goes off literally right across the street from you still kinda leaves the ears ringing.
