    Walked outside my door for work, turned around and walked right back in. Sustained winds of 25 to 30MPH, gusting to 60MPH....Tough to do leaves.

    Windy yes, snowing no. Lol its a nice 75 degrees here. Not natural for this time of year. Any of you fellows get tired of the snow and want some ryegrass to mow come on down.

    High winds and rain came in over night. Sustained winds here of 30-40mph with much higher gusts. Some sleety snow during the morning. Windchill of 11 degrees. Trees and many limbs down, some locations without power, and some roads closed. And to think, yesterday afternoon it was 60 degrees and mostly sunny!

    Wet leaves are heavier, but don't blow around as easy. I can suck em up with less blowout
