Batten down the hatches!!!!
This wind that has come in from the western coast is pretty severe. We're having gusts from 60 to 90 km/hr. Not a hurricane, by any means, but sure strong enough to rattle the windows. If it hasn't hit your area yet, make sure you've picked up everything and put it away. I went outside for a bit and it was instant grit in my teeth. Yuck.
It took my full birdfeeder right off the pole and set it on the ground about 10 feet away - upright, fortunately. DH is shingling our new shed and it's a given that any unsecured tarpaper is ripped off. So far, it hasn't ripped off any of the shingles at the unfinished line. Our yard has been filled with construction debris overnight. The joys of living in a newer subdivision.
