    Get used to it, I was born here, it's always windy, that's why we sold the boat and put in a pool, couldn't use the dang thing ever.

    It is because of the earth's tilt on it's axis. Changing of seasons is due to the tilt. If we didn't have it it would always be a constant length of day and no change. We are moving more to a predominately high pressure pattern this time of year. We will get the wind again in late fall. Hows that?
