Holy cow is it windy, my portable basketball hoop thats filled with water in the bottom of it fell over on my priceless '95 Cherokee with 257,000 miles. Haha. Is the whole state windy today? The forecast says 45mph gusts but with all the tree limbs down, I'd swear its closer to 55mph.

Here in Middletown accuweather says sustained winds of 25-35 mph with gusts from 50-60 mph. Earlier today it said we were having gusts of 65 mph. Crazy windy!

Windy here in Dover, too.
Just like Christmas! A really large green rubbermaid horse feeding tub with rope handles, obviously from a nearby farm, blew up on my front yard. If it's yours, call to identify. Not so nice plastic flower pots and artificial flowers, are all over town, too.

We were driving up Rte 1 this eveinng towards Dover and outside Milton we noticed thick blackish/grey clouds in the sky off to our left. Convinced it was a fire we were headed for, we craned our necks to look for fire trucks or commotion of some sort. Sky got blacker as we approached and visibilty decreased. Then all of a sudden we noticed that it was not a fire but rather a HUGE dust storm swirling and dancing about, extending up into the sky like smoke from a fire! Never saw anything like that before. At our destination, we related the encounter and one woman, who also saw it, said she is originally from Kansas and has never seen a dust storm such as this. Very odd sight indeed!

The wind resulted in a power outage here in Westover Hills, Greenville by around 9.00 a.m. and it stayed off until sometime after 4.00 in the afternoon. Thank goodness for our generator! We are probably in one of the most outage-prone areas in the whole state, thanks to the mixture of above-ground lines and big trees.

The wind was horrible here in Ocean View yesterday. There were large, white buckets blowing around on route 26, and one became lodged under this guy's Jeep. OHHH, I would have been hot if that was me!!

Luckily, we did not lose power. We had quite a few "upgrades" around here about two years ago, and it's been a blessing!

I find it extremely wind in these parts. Maybe cuz it's wide open spaces?

Came home from a nice weekend away to find our deck damaged by the winds. Our privacy wall was down and blown to bits too. Had the deck furniture tied together and covered but it was all over the place. Must have been very windy in Middletown.

On the way up to the Dover Mall yesterday......one of the gas station canopies over the pumps blew completely over.
Kind of scary. Just hope no one was hurt.
