It did get very windy as the day went on, it was +14 by noon, and the wind was nowhere near as cold as yesterday. It was bright and sunny for most of the day but we could see a storm coming from over the mountains, we had a rain shower for about 20 minutes and then it was bright and sunny again. By early evening the wind had almost completely died down.
