Winds are going to be the story through tomorrow (Tuesday). So you may want to hang to any small children – or put ankle weights on them to keep them grounded. And ladies, extra Tres Somme hairspray may be needed for the day.

This also goes for any of your stuff outside, like plants, small animals and trampolines. Yep, you know, that thing you paid hundreds of dollars for that your kids never use? Yeah, that one. Don’t believe me, check out this video of Trampolines Gone Wild.

Anything that is vulnerable to strong wind should be considered to be secured. Even those water hose houses – you know those plastic boxes with that winding crank to roll up your water hose? Those should be secured as well.

Most of our region is under a HIGH WIND WATCH - FROM TUESDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH TUESDAY EVENING.

WHAT does that mean?

Winds from 35 to 45 mph with gusts up to 60 mph possible.

Damaging winds could blow down trees and power lines. Widespread power outages are possible. Get some candles and batteries ready. Not to alarm - no, we just know that “luck favors the prepared”.

Along with the wind comes a 75% chance of rain. So, you might want to consider getting some windshield wiper blades for your car to prep the first storm of Fall of 2020. I know my Chevy Cruze is due.

One thing you should not secure? A kite. Take advantage of the wind, if you dare to fly one.
