Full-throttle frontal action
We've got a severe wind warning until later this afternoon, followed by heavy rain and possible thunderstorms. (Wind velocities have been clocked at up to 66 mph over at Blue Hill Observatory, just to the south of the city.)
It's kind of freaky having the wind howl around your office, to have the blinds be moved from behind closed windows. (Is the building swaying or is the window not insulated?) Am very glad that I don't have to be working outside today. (ooh - and now the rain's started.)
EEE! The building just started shaking in earnest with the last gust! It sounds like Niagara Falls out there, too!
