Gusts up to 60mph took the roof of the old smoke house which 'bout
gave poor Bruno a heart attack. Sucks to be those down south though.

Re: A Little Windy
Didn't see the lake, but it was some windy in my back yard 1,500 metres north.
I was half expecting to see some of the trees come down.

Calm now, though.

Re: A Little Windy
It certainly was windy, hit 77knts at the local yacht club for several short periods of time! Traffic lights blew off the standards, truck or two overturned. My outside display of inflatable boats broke their mooring and took off for some land sailing! windy this morning, but not that windy certainly.

Re: A Little Windy
Globe sez bunch of high-schoolers were rowing in Hamilton harbour when it hit. Blew the support boat away from the rowers and capsized a scull. No one hurt but a close call.

Re: A Little Windy
I was in port Dover and watched 4 boats get blown over, gusts to 75 mph was incredible

Re: A Little Windy
The western side of Lake Macquarie NSW Australia coped a hiding over the last few days as a vicious low formed off the mid north coast. It is the first time my dingy has entirely filled with rain water (then more than once). Gladly, the skies are now clearing and the howling east to south winds have abated to a gentle offshore.

Re: A Little Windy
We had bumper boats here in the anchorage in Panama. It only got up to about 25 knots. I think the problem here is lots of people on a short scope due to the tidal range of 15+ft., and it was close to high tide.......i2f

Re: A Little Windy
We are in the keys trying to catch some Mahi and it is 15-25 knots with higher gusts! 10 foot plus in the gulfstream!! Guess we will have to chase some Tarpon..
