Got one of 92MPH about 15 miles west of me yesterday, doubt it hit 45 here.  I do remember a storm in the early 1970's when they recorded a 142 MPH gust just south of the city of Boulder.  Took  off a few roofs and power lines.

Wind blew 18 wheelers over on I20 Near Kilgore TX last night during a thunder storm. Knocked out power in parts of Kilgore.

Interesting that Shameless can't tell directions the wind is from the west not the North.

Maybe there's part of the problem, vast majority of Canadians live south of the 49th.
 
As for where it comes from, 1714 was one of the earlier reference I found.

Not around here lately Wayne.  It changes direction about every 15 minutes or so.  And it's swirling and punishing and COLD AND WET!!
