Is it blowing or sucking?

One of my favorite websites is Wind Map. Because I'm a bit of a geek. And because sometimes I want to know how strong the winds are and where I can go to get away from them. And because, animation.

The desert is known for its chronic windiness, so it's quite odd to have had several days of almost still air. Wind Map shows why. Missouri has become a black hole of wind.

AAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaah! I'm being sucked down to hell!


  1. Fascinating. I wonder what all this has got to do with the latest imminent Northeastern snowstorm?

    1. Could be. The vortex is tracking northeast. It's over Illinois as I write this.
