Windy

One of the things this area is noted for is wind. It hasn't stopped since I've been here and it sure makes flying the flag difficult. I have my weather station set to give a wind alarm at 25 mph and then pull the flag down to avoid undue stress on my 16' fiberglass pole.

God Bless the USA.

Chip came by yesterday and he is now working up a quote on the two types of awning fabrics available and then I'll have a choice to make. Apparently the choice is vinyl or canvass and there is a price and wear difference. I'm hoping to get the information today so we can get something ordered.

The rest of the day will be spent avoiding the wind while enjoying the good life.

  1. Sounds like that area could be a sister to the RGV. Lots of wind.

  2. I think wind is everywhere this spring. We are definitely "breezy" today also. Which means Jim can't go fishing. He's not happy with the weather.

  5. Love to see our colors flying but I guess that's probably a bit too much. Gotta take care of Old Glory.

    1. The wind got so bad I had to strike the colors. I'll have to wait until things calm a bit.

  7. Hope the winds die down before you replace that awning. I'd hate to see you blown away trying to hand on to it and then the news reporting all kinds of UFO sightings... ;c)

    1. Chip already told me, he doesn't work in the wind either.
