Yet another extremely windy day here on the Front Range. Winds 25 to 35 with gusts up to 45. What a strange winter this is shaping up to be, with so much wind and so little snow. We've had about 3 inches total snowfall so far this winter, but the past few weeks we're getting something like 3 High Wind Advisory days a week. It's making us mental.

Situations like this often seem to bring up the fatalistic streaks in us. Cindy commented to me that this prolonged delay in "real" winter just means we're gonna get it, and hard, real soon. And she's a climatologist!


It sounds like the "mistral" winds in the south of France. They are supposed to be so strong and so monotonous that they drive people crazy.
