It has been windy the last several days. I couldn't get a historical weather report for the day & area we traveled through, but the nearest I could get a report for also recorded winds above 10 MPH, so that also might have played a factor. These aren't exactly hurricane winds, but they have been continuous throughout the day, and are more than normal.
