Here is a current Wind Advisory for (Minneapolis, MN) until 11:30am, Wed Nov 9 2005, from your local National Weather Service office.
...WIND ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 4 PM CST THIS
NORTHWEST WINDS OF 25 TO 35 MPH WILL BE COMMON WITH HIGHER GUSTS
TO NEAR 50 MPH. WINDS THIS STRONG CAN MAKE DRIVING DIFFICULT
...ESPECIALLY FOR HIGH PROFILE VEHICLES. USE EXTRA CAUTION.
UNSECURED OBJECTS MAY ALSO BE BLOWN AROUND.
Fortunately I wasn't driving, I was riding. Does that mean I fall into the category of "unsecured objects"? All I know is that it was a tough ride in.
