When the wind blows….

 

 Like most people who enjoy the outdoors, I am a compulsive weather watcher. I’m sure I have more than 10 weather related apps on my phone. My favorite site is wind guru. It is very accurate for the wind direction, though it has a tendency to slightly underestimate the wind speed (The optimistic sailor’s forecast?). The wind speed is colour coded- more colour, more wind. Pale blue is good, dark blue is lively, pink, red and purple suggest finding an alternative activity! 

The first trip of the season was due to begin tomorrow, and I know Easter is quite early and is known for volatile weather, but wind guru has altogether too much purple in it for me this week. Hopefully we’ll only have to postpone for a day…
