    Are you sticking your head out the window while you're driving down the freeway again!? :smack: :thumb: The NWS says gusts of 37 in R-ville. I'm up here on the 12th (top) story of a building in LR and I can feel it moving. Making a lot of noise too! :eek:

    Or on the lake. :smack: Guess you would save gas. Just head out now and plan to fish to the north of the ramp and the south wind would push you right there....then here before long when the wind switches to out of the north, it'll push you right back to the ramp. :thumb:

    Anyone got a kite? Today would be a great day to go and fly it. :biggrin:
     
  6. We're at Baptist here in LR and we get to watch everyone walk into the hospital trying to brave the winds! It's actually quite funny...but seriously, the wind is really howling out there.

    Same problem here. I'm on the Fire Department and we have been called out twice in the last hour. Once to a power line down resulting in a grass fire and then to a part of a metal roof being blown off into the highway.:censored:
    We now have just been put on standby to assist neightboring departments in Indepence county incase of a major fire.:smack:

    My hair cuttin' lady about burned up the farm today. They were just burning a little trash early when it was still out, but the wind came up sudden and caught them by surprise. :smack: Lost several hay bales, but could have been a disaster!

    And I heard Ft. Chaffee was basically on fire, they thought somebody had set fire to one of the empty barracks buildings, and of course it spread rapidly. Radio said they were considering closing down some of the nearby highways due to the smoke! :eek:

    Feels like I made a wrong turn somewhere and I'm in the Gulf of Mexico instead on the MS river. Winds are steady 25-35 mph with some gusts lately up to 45-50 on my wind gage. Got some big swells in the big river.

    Shoulda been with me...45ft in the air, trying to pick up wire with the winds at 35-45 mph!!!!!!!!! we'd get wire picked up behind a switch...go to make it Hot, and the line that fed the switch would be Dead...from another tree falling into it!!!!! Almost like beating yer head up against a wall....making no Progress!!!!!! the temps dropped pretty fast too.......I'm getting too old for this crap:smack:
