How's the wind where you're at?

I LOL'd at the videos. This is at Crown Point in the Gorge. It's actually been some nice Juneuary wether, but the side affect when the valley warms up is all the air getting sucked through the Gorge.

Re: How's the wind where you're at?

I can vouch for the cold foggy weather here on the East side. I wish things would go back to normal - warmer and windy here, keep the rain and fog over on the Wet side!

Re: How's the wind where you're at?

lol, gnarly. we dont see wind like that much...and im glad, shessh. i hate wind. was one of the driving factors from leaving the east side of our state, which is a freaking blowhole all year long. guess id best not bitch about when we do get it though, cuase id hate to see conditions like that on any kind of regular basis.

Re: How's the wind where you're at?

I drove my van east through the Gorge last week. It was a little exciting driving into the teeth of it with the Voyager top. Great mileage.

Didn't get pushed around so much this week in the car, but I think the winds were probably worse.
