The Personality of Wind

for a windy city, this is a strangely calm day, the air perfectly still, clouds floating lazily high in the sky

for A River of Stones



I've just discovered Windsite - a lovely new site that combines personal observations of the wind alongside the meterological data for the time and place of the observations. Have a read of it, and share your own observations!


As ever, the red text includes hyperlinks that take you to other websites to find out more!

Thanks for sharing the link about windsite. What a great concept. I just registered and look forward to reading the work there. :)

This makes me realise how I usually notice the wind when it is blustery/stormy/destructive. But tend not to think as much about it when it's calmer. Thanks for encouraging me to notice!

I love clouds floating lazily.

Interesting website Juliet.
"A website dedicated to the human experience of wind." Too much information! :O)

Here we hang out wind chimes on Mother's Day and take them in on Columbus Day!

I've never thought of Edinburgh as a windy city.
A windsite seems interesting, but here, our to site is Geonet - the New Zealand site that measures earthquakes and other geological events - we have been very busy checking on all the aftershocks in the last five months!
