Just seeded lawn before heavy winds

I just overseeded a lawn on Sunday and two days later (yesterday) we had pretty heavy winds, probably around 50mph or so. I stopped by today and didn't really notice any of the seed on the soil. Do you think it blew away? Should I reseed it?

Of course you raked it in after you put it down and watered it right?

I don't watch sports. I watch the local weather report every day.

You overseeded or there were bare spots and you reseeded them? If there is other grass, such as there would be if you were overseeding a lawn, the wind should not have blown the grass seed away. If it was a bare spot and you raked it in, you should also be fine.
