    • It's cold, heyna?

      Wind Advisories, as with all weather warnings and advisories, are initially issued by the National Weather Service.

    • No News Here

      Hang a piece of string on your front porch. If it’s moving, its windy. If it’s wet, its raining. Don’t rely on other people.

    • Huh?

      And what would this wind advisory do for you Ryan, tell you it’s going to be windy? Like the advisory would prevent a power outage? Must be a Democrat – needs someone to blame for their not being prepared.
