Afternoon post

It's 4:00 PM and the wind is starting to pick up. I would guess where we are it averages about 10 to 15 mph but gusts are at least twice that. We are in the "dry" side of the storm, so the wind feels like a hot summer breeze blowing through Amarillo. It is coming out of the NNE. My main worry is where to park our cars so that falling tree limbs or trees don't hit them. We live in a neighborhood with lots of mature trees. My neighbor has two very tall palm trees. These trees have very small root systems. They can get knocked over easily. The north wind would bring these trees down either on my garage/game room or on my driveway. I can't do much about the game room, but I can keep cars out of the drive way.
