We are in a windstorm here in the upper midwest.

I was sailing yesterday morning, racing an Ensign in Miwaukee harbor with the Milwaukee Community Sailing Center.
It was 10-20 then.

It over 10 beaufort!
Peaks in the high 50's mph.

windier than heck here too. It has settled some this morning but still blowing 20kt, gusting to 30, with the occasional gust in the 50's

I could hear shingles lifting on my house laying in bed this morning in some of them.

Never, ever, ever buy Certainteed shingles, or siding for that matter. Junk


I'm boatless.

I'm going to need a new roof in the next few years, barring a leak sooner. I'll make a note of those shingles not to get.
