Windy here all night.

Been very windy all night here.

Thought some weather terms would be appropriate today as the country seems to be experiencing some very severe weather throughout the United States and beyond. We had 65-75 mile an hour winds all night and KS, IA, NE, CO along with a few other States had 100 mile an hour winds.
