Just now we’re under a wind advisory, and there’s really quite a bit of wind here. It’s supposed to be 25 to 35 miles per hours sustained winds, and gusts of up to 45. The latter would be a “real” storm.
Actually the winds IS whistling around the corners and blowing about stuff, e.g. our trash can, even if that’s located in a corner at the back of the house, behind the back porch bannister. Hopefully, not too many oter items will be blown around.
And this is what the wind advisory looks like:
