    There is a field beside our subdivision and when we get wind like this you should see the dust storms. I'll look outside and it looks like there is a snow blizzard going on, but it's all the sandy dirt that is blowing from that field. Incredible. Have you heard what the winds are gusting to today? From the way my house is shaking it feels like gusts of 50mph, at least!

    In Raleigh the weather service says 15-20 MPH but its more than that. Its at least 30 MPH

    It's REALLY windy in Sylva today too. It's scary to see the power lines swaying back & forth sooooo much. The poor little birdies can't land on them today. [​IMG]

    As soon as I saw the title, I said, hmmm, somebody in the southeast. Yep, small craft warnings are up, and it's blowing like the dickens here in sunny South Carolina at the coast.

    Two weeks... good grief [​IMG] ...that's worse than what Hurricane Fran did to us back in '96... and we lost half our roof in addition to our power!​
