I live in Boulder, Colorado and we get A Lot. Of. Wind. Man-oh-man do we get wind. In 1982 we had gusts of 132 mph one night in February. The destruction was immense. It’s kind of a joke around here to weight things down — deck furniture especially — because of it. We have an ugly as hell “side” table on our deck that’s made of two by fours that weighs about 60 pounds but hey, it won’t blow away (fingers crossed).
Anyway, I came across — this site – Earth Wind Map — after seeing a post about hurricanes heading toward Hawaii tonight (good luck ya’ll!). But then I realized — with a flick of the ol’ cursor (drag it around on the site) — wind speeds and directions all over the planet could be accessed and visualized. Really, really cool.
Here’s a screenshot of what’s happening over Hawaii tonight:
Here’s what’s happening over eastern Antarctica tonight:
So, so interesting.
