When it's windy, we don't put the trash/recycle out overnight. Always in the morning only. When it's too windy, the recycle container stays in the back yard until it's full. Otherwise, we will never see it again. Our street is a wind tunnel, coming from the north.

Fortunately in my neighborhood Republic Services traded our loose bins for wheeled carts with attached lids a year or so ago. It seemed that I could always count on the wind getting up the night before recycle day, with me having a bunch of light stuff sitting out in open bins. Now I don't worry about the wind, because the cart isn't going anywhere. No more checking in the morning to see if half of my stuff has blown against the neighbors'' fences.

Ha, the wind is the one thing I dislike about the weather out here. Even in a suit, I don't mind the heat; rain/snow, just grab an umbrella; if it's cold, I can wear a coat. But the wind is just a pain to try to mitigate.

This comes up periodically. But it is not real. At worst LV has moderate winds. Try Chicago or NY or Detroit or ...

Yeah the wind is rarely an issue at all. I think some people are just incredibly sensitive to any breeze but the average wind is moderate and below many US cities. There was one very windy night, I think it was last Saturday or Friday? I can’t recall but you could hear it pounding the windows for about an hour or so and whistling around. It still didn’t move anything I had outside though, it was just noisy and then disappeared. Otherwise there was almost no wind for like 10 days.

Google Windiest Cities in the Country, some time, and see where Las Vegas is on the list. Last time I looked the annual average windspeed for Las Vegas was 9.2MPH, highest being Cheyenne, WY at 13.9 and lowest, tied between Phoenix and Los Angeles at 6.2MPH. Not enough wind, and then comes the smog.

And no, Chicago isn't much windier than Las Vegas. Chicago only got dubbed Windy City because of the journalists coming to visit Chicago and the people there couldn't brag enough about what a great city it was. That kind of "wind".

Boston, on the list, was a big surprise, didn't realize Boston was so windy! Lowest average annual windspeeds are in Medford, OR @4.5MPH.

Here, in Tucson, we don't get near the wind that Las Vegas gets. Loving every minute of it.

Anyone that downplays the wind factor in Las Vegas, is probably a RE agent trying to lure people to move there.

Please Tij. This has been kicked to death. The average Lass Vegas wind speed is more than 10% lower than Chicago's. There are very few eastern or Midwestern cities with a lower average wind speed than LV.

And no it is not a big sales point for LV. Just another of the places where LV is average. .
