Winds of the past, a farm today

I love the wind. I like to feel it rushing by, rustling leaves. I like to watch birds catch a breeze and take off. My son loves flying kites, and watching bubbles twisting around, showing us just how much our air moves. However, there is a point where it stops sounding like the ocean and starts causing damage.

It knocks tree branches down, sends items unsecured across the highway, and causes damage to property and trees.
