I’ve posted this wind map before, but in the past two or three weeks I’ve felt compelled to look it up again. We’ve had a number of extremely windy days and it occurred to me that the map might be particularly dramatic. This screenshot is from 10 pm this evening, and it looks like Denver is getting off easy compared to farther east. I wish I’d thought to check at about 7 pm, when Google told me we were having 30 mph winds. I checked Google because Tuesday is my trash night, and recently it seems that’s also the night for high winds. I’m hoping the bin, now with two weeks’ worth of trash, is too heavy to blow over. Last week it blew over before I could even get back to the house.
Oh, and no, no moisture with all that wind. Up in the mountains, yes, but here on the plains, no.
Anyway, have fun with the map. Click on it to zoom in to your location, and refresh the page to zoom back out. Depending on the weather, it can be really dramatic, attractive, or interesting.
