Want to be wind optimistic?

Fun fact - I've often noticed of late a profound difference in wind forecast speeds between the NWS graph I keep for my home location and those that I check for Gainesville/Lake Lanier. You could check this by entering 30307 zip for location. Right now, for instance, my graph shows higher base winds and a solid string of "dots" from now until 1:AM Sunday. I don't really think that it's windier here than there, but who knows?

I think it's not unusual. I usually check forecasts for Gilmer and McCollum or Dobbins depending on the season. Usually one is better than the other. Most often G-ville is stronger, but lately there have been times when the forecast was stronger on the west side.

There is no off season.

Dots. Dots everywhere for Gilmer. Somebody bumped the NWS servers last night? Langdon is making noises about Vanns this afternoon.
