So How Windy is It?

In the Portland area, there have been reports of 60-71 mph winds. The wind has been whipping around the house the past three days. Last night when I left to pick Jim up from the airport, our trampoline had moved about 20 feet from right outside our kitchen window to the side of the yard where the gate is. I was amazed it see that. This morning, Jim went out side to do something and called to me. He asked me to look and see what was missing. I looked and the trampoline was gone! It had been picked up and ended up in the neighbors pond, 100 feet away. It was taken by the wind over a four foot fence. Unbelievable but you can see it for yourself... I guess that's one way to get a bigger yard over night.
