    Default Windchella ...may be fucking super windy

    Wind is tearing shit up here in Indio/Coachella today. Palm trees are bending and if you had a tent outside it'd be 8 miles down the road.

    Wind in this area is strange...some nights there's no wind this time of year and other nights it's a fucking rip roaring and unfun. I'm super glad the festival is still a few days away.. I'll bet the wind today slows down the guys n gals setting up for the fest.

    Bring gear and be ready for f'n windchella

    if your lucky you might get blown...and not blown away.

    It is windy everywhere in southern CA today.

    That will clear by Friday.

    It will be moderately windy (8-14 MPH) over the weekend, but Indio is always somewhat windy, so that's not bad at all.

    Weather will be fairly good for this time of year. It can easily be over 100 for a high, but you are looking at 92/67 for the most part this weekend.

    I learned from last year to bring a few large rocks for the corners of my tent and some bricks for the EZ Up.

    Windy in Vegas too. Hopefully the festival will slip in between the next system and it will be all good. Sucks for the staff right now.

    Does all this wind mean that when I drive in I get to see all the wind powered electric generator farm thingies going crazy? That's cool.

    Wait, so you are telling me that weather changes from one day to the next? I would think that excessive wind today means we will have excessive wind for the next 3 months.

    Last year on Friday the wind did a number on me. First an 8' tree in a planter near the entrance toppled over on my head....and later inside the fest the wind hurled a trash can that popped me in the face and knocked me on my ass. Fun times.

    Bailey, you've either got a shitty camera or this is a picture from a different windy day because while it might be windy, the skies are sunny and clear with patchy clouds. Oh, and the temp is sitting at 73*.

    Yea, I have no idea what it's going to be one day from the next regarding wind, but just giving a heads up to those reading....come prepared in case it is super windy.

    I take a bandana (for face blocking sand and easier to breath)
    windbreaker jacket (good even if it's not windy as it'll be a bit chilly at night)
    clear safety glasses from Home Depot (keeps the dirt out of my eyes if it's windy & it's easy to see the shows)

    just put it all in the locker...and if I need it...it's there.

    While gathering up our camping crap, it became quite obvious to me that over the past few years of camping, I must have felt a need to continue adding to my growing tent stake collection, therefore leaving me with enough extras for 2-3 more tents. If it gets crazy I plan on sharing.
