Crazy wind storms...

The wind and rain picked up a bit yesterday here in Canada BC, and there are branches EVERYWHERE, yet the power somehow never went out.  I was cycling along the ocean and this massive tree went over, and it peeled back a huge chunk of earth with it.  The chunk was maybe 15 feet high when standing next to it.  Then as I'm going up this nasty steep hill in the forest, all the branches got caught up in my spokes, so I fell over like an idiot because my shoes were clipped into the pedals.  I stood up, brushed myself off, and quickly got out of there.  Then later I looked down at my GPS, and saw that it wasn't there!  I just burst out laughing because everything was going wrong, so I had to race all the way back into the forest, and then search all around the branches where I fell over, and eventually I found it.  It was an interesting day.

It's pretty damn windy here in Calgary... but thankfully everything that could go wrong is for the most part going right.

I was in Hawaii for the past few days last week and it was pretty windy in some areas of the island, weather man said it was a little unusual.

I live in BC too, and I was camping down by the local lake today when the wind picked up like crazy. The trees were bending over and my family and I had planned to have our Easter dinner there but it was a little too nuts for that. We had to pack up and go home.

The wind is so goddamn annoying in Vancouver that they piss me off.
 
Though I do love me some wind when its a breeze in the sunshine. Just not this kinda crap.
