Cruise on, flat highway.
Normally, my boost gauge will sit above the first marker.
It had the same feeling as riding a hot air balloon, no wind noise whatsoever.

Yeah Travis, your north winds came down and hit us last night.... we had sustained winds in the 20-30mph range, with sporadic gusts in the 40s. Rattled the windows a bit, and brought colder temps with it.

I'm in Plainview, Nebraska and that wind came ripping through. Sure came through in a hurry about 8PM.
There were some Hispanic'* (no pun intened -my brother married the coolest Mexican chick who'* really taught my family not to be racial) in the motel room next to mine and they'd left some empty 40 oz bottles on the patio tables. Wind came in and those bottles rolled around the patio/parking lot all evening and I hardly slept a wink, but about 2:30 AM they arrived back at the motel and cleaned it all up and this morning when my crew was leaving for work one of the Mexican guy'* was out telling everyone he was sorry about the noise and the mess.
