We had a high wind storm the other day here in the Eastern Aleutians. Eleven HOURS of 40-60 sustained wind and gusts as high as 132-140 hit Unalaska and nearby Akutan.
Fortunately my OptimEra Internet stayed up here in Unalaska so in between moving away from windows that were rippling and bulging and looked about to burst, I was able to look at Windy.com and see what was next up in the thrills/chills dept.
Was rather astonished to see so much detail of the storm was shown on Windy.com One way or another we all had been watching its progress as it headed our way - for days, so we had time to prepare.
What I found fascinating was the way the detail showed the complexity of the wind patterns including the lulls between the upcoming high speed gusts. They appeared as I finally figured out after one passed and the next arrived, in slightly different color blobs.
THAT helped me predict the degree of 'hit' my home would get and where to move to incase any windows broke.
Just wanted to thank all the Windy.com folks for helping us here stay SO INFORMED by being able to SEE SO CLEARLY what was about to & what had occurred.
Being able to compare the forecast with real time on the ground experience was boggling.
THANKS :) !!!!!
