I was going to skin the greenhouse tomorrow, but I have to do it on a calm day. SP and I have made other plans now.

Currently there isnt a hint of wind,  and strangely still. Like the 'cslm before a storm" thing. No frogs, birds...My town is not on that list, but presume we will get some breeze anyway.

Crummy on your snow. My friend in Wisconsin got 5" the night before last. I was in a t-shirt working outside today.

So far wind and heavy rain at times. Mostly light rain. Snow flurries if it happens will be tonight when the worst of the storm passes through.  Very cold and damp outside. So working inside house today.

A few sprinkles of rain, no high wind. At least so far and I don't expect any. Reckon that why they're called "weather guessers". Front has moved through and is maybe 100+ miles off shore. Temps dropping but that's all.

I was out driving doing errands and scavenging supplies... the wind was strong enough in places it was trying to push my truck off the road over by Woodburn.

Take care...

One of the things I truly do not like about NM is the wind... it really makes the springtime (especially) miserable every year.

In my area:  April’s average wind speed of around 9.3 knots (10.7 MPH or 17.2 KPH) is considered “a gentle breeze.” Maximum sustained winds (the highest speed for the day lasting more than a few moments) are at their highest in early to mid April where average top sustained speeds reach 21.6 knots, which is considered a fresh breeze.
