Was in the mid 20's here last few days for wind. Has just died down to pretty much nothing tonight. Supposed to be back up to 30 mph for Friday.

We had 50 to 60 mph gust today. My son was headed into with a load of calves headed for Alberta. He was sure hoping it went down before he had to turn and burn for home or he might be on his side.

You fellas up north can shut the door anytime!! It's been damn windy, wet and cold, but I guess it is almost December.

Up here on the 49th, the wind was gusting to 125 kph, did a little damage to livestock shelters, and tipped a few semis over on the road. I went out riding yesterday afternoon, in the wind, wind blew so hard had to take the saddle blanket off the horse, and strap it to his butt, to keep the bit from popping out of his mouth.
