Today was a very windy day. The house was creaking, trees were bent out of shape, and this afternoon as I crossed the 520 bridge across Lake Washington, the bridge sections were rocking back and forth and there were waves crashing into the cars in the oncoming eastbound lane. It was all I could do to keep the car headed in a roughly straight line with all of the wind and water. Waves! I'm not prepared for this stuff. We didn't have "water" back in Nebraska. Sure, sometimes the streets would be fully iced over and people would slide uncontrollably through red lights and bounce off of curbs, but at least the road wasn't moving under you.
