When you think of the “big bad” perils that can mess with your world, you think of other stuff. You think about lightning, fire, creepy thieves, right?
But wind can really sock it to ya! It’s weather! It’s kind of uncontrollable, right? What are you supposed to do?
Well, awareness is the start. When you hear weather reports about wind, pay attention. When you see things blowing across your lawn, go secure them. Believe it or not, some items can become very dangerous when “harnessed” by heavy wind. Instant projectiles. They can dent things. They can go through windows. They can blow out into the street and cause car accidents.
When you’re driving, watch for these errant pieces of “personal property”, too. Encountering a garbage can or a resin lawn chair in the middle of the road isn’t something you tend to expect. So, when you come upon things like this, you may steer or swerve into a ditch or an oncoming car. Not a great idea.
Bottom line? Pay attention to all kinds of weather and adjust your responses accordingly.
