Noah-They don't call Chicago the windy city for nothing.  We get our fair share too

Wow Sharon,

When we had winds in Los Angeles, we used to find our umbrella with the stand in the pool, and the stone that the stand is in is quite heavy...It took the two of us diving in to get it out...LOL A

Alexandra-The force of winds are a powerful thing. I have heard a lot about those San Ana winds being a force to be reckoned with

Lawn swings take me back to pleasant memories of childhood.  We had a neighbor with one, and I often enjoyed rocking on it.

Glad you weren't laying down on it when it flipped. :) That would have been rude wake-up call.
Hope all is well with you. D

Sam-Just winds did that

Myrl-They do take us back to a simpler time.

Michael-It happens all in a span of an hour,. Southern storms can get fierce

Sharon, it's good to hear the swing didn't sustain any damage.  Last evening while taking down the patio umbrella, I thought I was going to fly away with it!  The winds have been very high recently.

Bette-I have been very lucky so far because it has happened about 4 times now. I think I better anchor it to that tree it is in front of

Sharon, oh, haha! I can't believe I missed this windy piece! I DID see it later, upright once again. 

Hope you are enjoying your "respite". How many more days?? (Not enough).

Oh boy. I hope she wasn't injured in the fall. 

We are having heavy winds today, and it's a shame because the vendors are setting up their tents for our Applefest.
