Whipped by Wind

This afternoon we were hit by some pretty massive winds.

Blow Blow Blow

I don't have a wind gauge here, but I would suggest the winds did reach gale force at times.

I did not manage to get it on this video, but I saw fly off the top of one of the asphalt plant tanks in the distance a large piece of sheet metal that shot up into the air and tumbled to the ground.

After a while, it started to rain briefly, and then snow blew in for a while. Air temperatures remained above freezing, but sideways snow blew through for a while before the wind slackened and the snow stopped. I'm glad I didn't to to Reno today to collect my auction winnings!
