Where's the Wind?

So, this morning, the news media made it sound like we were going to be having an big wind storm this afternoon... complete with monumental power outages and a need for an in-home survival kit. Aside from some creaking and yawing in my office building today, I'm waiting for the epic storm. Did I simply blink at the wrong time and miss the storm? Or have my standards been raised after last year's actual epic windstorm, power outage, and cold? I dunno... but I do know that we can put the MREs back in the cupboard, the storm has passed for now, I think.

Bummer, I was kind of looking forward to a good storm this evening...

I think the news media is trying to cover their asses...after last years storm when they didn't prepare people, they're hyper cautious now about alerting people. It was breezy, but not THAT breezy! I agree :-)

I went for a run after work during the "storm" and felt like I was running uphill the whole time so I suppose there was SOME wind. All in all i was dissapointed though. I even took the time to get my candles ready. I was excited. At least it is early in the "winter". We still have time for a massive storm.
