Love that episode of Winnie the Pooh during a windstorm where Piglet is being blown about like a fallen leaf and Pooh has latched onto his scarf and starts wishing everyone a Happy Windsday as they float past. Owl, of course, mentions that it's just a "mild spring zephyr."
Well, we're going to be experiencing some winds today. As of right now, they're predicting gusts up to 70mph, strong storms (we DO need the rain), and possible tornadoes. I'm battening down the hatches! Charging everything I can--phone, laptop, Kindle. Finding the flashlights and batteries. Moving the grill against the house, taking down the bird feeders, moving the bags of leaves into the garage. Last time we had sustained winds of 40 mph our power was out for a few days, others in the area had power out for up to nine days, and tons of people lost their roofs. Trees, too, took a major hit.
So, Happy Windsday! Here's hoping it's not going to be as bad as predicted...
How's the weather near you?
