Windy City...

And I don't mean Chicago. I'm talking Chey-town.

Wyoming is known for its wind. There is rarely a day when there isn't anything blowing around here.

Today's wind, however, is ridiculous - to the point that the possibility of blowing away like Mary Poppins doesn't seem silly.

It started last night and has continued non-stop today. Non. Stop. About 35 mph continuous with up to 66 mph gusts.

Every friend on facebook from Cheyenne had a comment about it, ranging from putting rocks in their pockets to keep from blowing away, to actually flying off.

Since I've been here I have to say, the wind hasn't been all that bad. We've had amazing weather. But today it almost feels like every gust that didn't blow before saved itself for today.

So here I am, content in my pj's on my couch with pizza and the remote.

Let it blow, let it blow, let it blow!

I remember that wind. I remember being at the Wal-Mart in Laramie and feeling like I was climbing a moutain to get from my car to the front door to fight the wind gusts. Or having to hold on tight to my car door so it didn't blow right off! Or NEVER doing much with my hair because I knew it wouldn't last long anyways! Ahhhh...the wind.
