windy weather

So, it’s a rather blustery day out there, and it’s apparently going to get even blusterier.

(I know, it’s not a word; work with me.)

I live in a house that’s surrounded by 80-90′ trees; I don’t really like strong winds all that much. A few weeks ago during a particularly windy day one of the trees in my front yard fell across the road. Luckily no one was driving, or biking, or walking, past at the time.

Read this report today of a woman impaled by a branch when a tree fell onto her Smart Car. I’m sorry if I seem to be lacking in sympathy, but how smart is it really to be out driving in a matchbox toy pretend Smart Car on what every weathercaster has been predicting will be one of the windiest days on record? The Edmund Fitzgerald couldn’t stand up to it, but gosh darn it, me and my matchbox toy pretend Smart Car will!

Wonder if she’s the same woman who was concerned about driving an electric car and forgetting to plug it in. . .
