A Successful Saturday

A sudden wind gust

Today certainly had a windy start. This morning when I woke up, winds were averaging about 35mph. I had just returned to my desk after completing the morning radio shows when the familiar howling of air rushing by the building turned my attention to the Hays chart. There, I confirmed that we had just experienced a peak wind gust, which upon further investigation, occurred at approximately 0730 EDT and read 89mph! The amount of energy contained within the atmosphere never ceases to amaze me, as I witnessed the winds increase over 50mph in just a matter of minutes.

After an eventful morning, we were fortunate enough to witness a beautiful sunset which brought a wonderful end to a productive day!
