We’ll know when it blows…

Good morning, Netizens…

If you haven’t fastened your hats down this damp Monday morning, it might be an auspicious time to borrow a neighbor’s staple gun and take care of that little detail as, otherwise, you might stand in danger of losing your headgear.

Given their lack of accuracy and in some cases, their problems with common diction, I seldom pay much attention to what the local television weather forecasters say. However, this morning the U.S. Weather Bureau has issued a high wind warning for Eastern Washington, something they seldom do. Here it is, barely six o’clock in the morning, and gusts are already kicking up a bit, but the forecast states in part we could easily see steady winds of 30-40 miles per hour and gusts as high as 60 miles per hour.

What does that imply to everyone? With winds of 60 miles per hour, we have historically seen fallen trees, and with them downed power lines and loss of communications.

With a cold front leering at us from the North, we can expect these winds will blow from this morning until later on this afternoon, perhaps even this evening.

What a way to start the new week!
