Relative to other places you have lived, how do you experience the wind in Bozeman? Is it seasonal? Particularly blustery?

It's windy most of the time in Bozeman. I lived there for 5 years in college and the wind seemed to blow all the time. Not hard or particularly fast, but it wasn't calm very often either.

Really? I don't think it's windy at all. Belgrade gets more wind, and Livingston gets a ton of it.

Maybe it's different in other parts of Bozeman (where you have houses and trees). I lived on campus and the wind blew nearly all the time on campus. We didn't have a lot of obstacles and south of Bozeman is mainly agricultural, so the wind seemed to blow all the time.

I'd call Bozeman "breezy" rather than windy. Great Falls is "windy" ...and Livingston is downright "cyclonic"!!

That's a good point... campus is very flat and open and it does gust there much more than my hilly neighborhood.

Thanks everyone! Here in NM we have one very windy season, spring, and do get fair wind other times of the year too, depends on the day. Yesterday was dead calm, today pretty windy. I think the wind agitates people. I think there have even been studies demonstrating that people behavior more erratically (and sometimes violently) during especially windy times. I know it makes me uneasy! I couldn't live in a place that had a constant, steady wind going every day.

Me, I like the wind. A little or a lot. (Well, so long as I don't have to drive against it, or fight sheets of plywood for dominance in it!) My grandmother liked it too. My mom hates it. My gram and I both were/are more inclined to go root around outdoors, my mom is an indoor person. Hmm...!!

What kind of winds are we talking about? To some that live up here, a 30 mile an hour wind is simply a breeze. When it gets up to around 40+, it is agitating. 70+ we start to wonder if it's going to snow with this.

So it's relative to what you're used to and what you can stand.

Haha, same here... we don't think it's "windy" til everything that's not nailed down, and some stuff that was, is on its way to Tucson
