Sucks,

one of the worst ideas I've had in a while. I kept getting pelted with mulch when pushing the wheelbarrow. First thing I did when I got home was to take out my contact lenses and take a shower.

One area I mulched was in the corner of the house where the wind would swirl and pick up the mulch. Luckily the HO had a hose and I watered it down to help settle it.

No fun, I've had similar experiences in tennis where the wind whistles on your bottle every time you try to drink, I'm sure the wind was less than 40 mph, but it was still difficult to play.

One of the few time you probably aim out of bounds and hope the wind pushes you back into the fairway.
