|Some guys clear a tree that had fallen onto a road |
in Cambridge, Vermont during a wind storm last Sunday.
As is usually the case with this type of storm, the high winds were very localized.
On the way to the storm, I drove through Cambridge village, where the winds were light. But I could hear the wind in the distance roaring on the mountain slope
Sure enough, two miles down the road, once I got near the Underhill town line, things were howling.
This wasn't the worst downslope wind storm I've ever seen in Vermont. Winds probably gusted to just over 60 mph when I was there. The highest wind gusts I saw reported were 62 mph.
Previous downslope wind events, like in December, 2012, brought gusts of over 90 mph in a few places.
Still, such winds are pretty impressive. Especially when combined with rain, then sun, and rainbows!
Heres' the brief rough video I took from the little clips and snippets I recorded in the storm:
