It'* that damn wind!!! I came home from the night club last night at about 2AM and it was damn near completely calm. About 5 minutes after I got home I heard the wind hit the house like a sledge hammer. It was screaming like a banshee!! I could hardly sleep being my bedroom is on the north side of the house and the wind was coming from the NW. Woke up around 5AM and decided to check the wind speed. According to 3 weather sites the local area was seeing between 35 steady and 60+ mph gust'*.
Also, at 2AM last night when I got home I checked the temp and it was 41* F. At 5 AM it was down to 32, and by 9 AM it was down to 27. With winds still steadily in the high 20'* and gusting well into the upper 40 mph the temp is still dropping. At 7 PM it was down to 17 and now it'* down to 13, and combined with the wind the windchill factor is well below 0*. :COLD:

We had one or two 70 mph gusts here in the TC/ Metro area today. Pretty nasty....It was windy as hell in down town MPLS last night. Took the girlfriend out to Hard Rock Cafe....That was a mistake....DON'T EVER EAT THERE.

Well, sounds like the lake effect is comin to Lake Erie and Northwest Pennsylvania as well. Had storm warnings on the tv, but was only for about 3-6 inches, so I guess that wind comin our way is the big issue.
