Watching the roof of my 25x25 shopcar port bouncing up and down making me wonder what's in store come late Monday. Slow moving front coming in and it's been windy for dang nearly a week now. The carport is tied down but most trailer houses are too....

Eastern Montana today: 30mph, gusts: 55

Yesterday: Wind: 50mph, gusts: 75. There might be something headed your way. Can you safely throw a couple ropes over the roof tied down to screw in dog tie or trailer house anchors?

It's windy here again. We are in a dry slot. Lots of wind blowing up from the south. It starts down in Texas/Oklahoma. The back side of a big ol 'cyclone.

I just take Dad's advice and carry ballast on extra windy days. Rocks in my pockets.

I’m visiting Family in Colorado Spring and it was terribly windy on Friday. Really miserable outside. Couple wildfires broke out but they got them under control.

Tied it down many years ago and replace the straps every few years. Used to only strap it down when there was a storm predicted but that got to be too much work so now I just leave em up there. Used to get the old straps from truckers that delivered to the plant. Seems like someone always had a set that they couldn't use anymore due to DOT regs. At least that's what they said. I think a cop can ticket a driver is he's running frayed straps? I don't have anymore of those anymore. They were pretty used up when I got them and I've been gone from there since 06 so I just get new ones when they go on sale.

We had some 50 mph winds early this week but no dust at least. Probably won't be long before we'll be getting the dust blown in from Africa which usually happens about late spring/early summer.

We watched it get up to 4 mph yesterday. I was worried sand was getting in my sandals.
