    Thanks! Looking like we have two more days of this on the way! Hopefully everything that could break already has!
    Sleeting now, 40 to 60 mph gusts, just went out to feed and the horses were lunatics. Lucky I made it out with my head still attached! Spookie trees snapping, I'm staying in.
    Coffee and muck boots, a hammer, and a wheel barrow have a date with me in the morning!!! Lol!

    Wind is just a blowing here too! Hoping we don't lose power tonight, but it wouldn't be unusual if we do. Something is happening to all the weather trends. They seem to be syncing up!

    Also, don't forget , this Saturday we "gain" an hour!

    Yes, it always makes me sleepy! It is March, so wiiiinnndddyy. The sound of it keeps some people up...not me, it knocks me out.

    When I am inside and the wind kicks up, I go outside to measure the "true speed", since it can sound like it is just howling when, in fact, it isn't "that bad". I wear shooting glasses to keep the dust out of my eyes - otherwise, it is miserable. I do not like to ride in the wind - pooh, bah!

    I hear you! We're currently getting more lake effect tonight! My husband went to college @ Lake Superior State and said there was always ice on the windows inside the dorm - only once were classes cancelled in his 4 yrs there, and the snow was so deep the National Guard was called in!

    I don't ride in the wind either- heck, when it's uber windy, I wouldn't dream of attempting to saddle my horse in it! Her "mare moments" kick in at that point! But that's o.k.- I'll settle for nuzzles and carrots in the shed and just stand there together talking :)

    Wind is very strong today here too. It doesn't bother me to sleep, but I don't like riding or working outside (plus it may blow something in eye).

    I guess I shouldn't complain....in your neck of the woods I imagine it is windy and cold.

    Well, I do know that the wind here can BLOW! My room especially, because it is on the north side, with 3 windows, just kind of sticking out on the second story roof because it's a semi-new addition. But luckily, I have never been awoken by it or kept awake by it, because I am the deepest sleeper you have ever met. I have one of those old fashion alarms with the little hammer thing that rings those bell things REALLY loud, and yesterday, I slept entirely through it. I don't even remember hearing it ring.

    Riding in the wind is a great way to desensitize your horse(s).
