Didn't go last night and skipped going today. Especially with hearing about the winds and knocking semis over on 70.

The western slope gets Fox31 regarding the Denver area news and himain is right. Watched some video on it just a bit ago. And the closer you get to the foothills the nastier it gets. The nastiest stretch is from Golden to Boulder--highway 93.

Back in about 1995, I had a temp job for a few months working out in that area at Rocky Flats when it was shutting down. A couple times, the wind became so bad, they had people run out and move their cars so the windshields were facing the mountains. Otherwise, you risked having the side windows blown out

IIRC, there was a gust of wind at 102 MPH yesterday in the Rocky Flats area. Nearby areas had gusts in the 70-80-90 MPH range.

I am close-by to Rocky Flats and I literally had my breath taken away by the winds yesterday. I could hardly keep my SUV from veering into traffic it was so bad.

That would explain why there's not much development in that area. I think there is a sort of air "funnel" right there coming through the mountains. But I wouldn't want to live anywhere the winds got that strong.

I lived in an area with winds like this. Of course it was Florida when we were experiencing a CAT2 hurricane.

I was actually going to say, the last time I experienced winds like this was during the 2004/2005 hurricane season in FL...
