High wind warnings?

Has anyone noticed high winds in the last 24 hours? I live on Whidbey, and it's been dead calm.

1. Lake Samish, have not had them yet but they are calling for some crappy weather.

 

With high tides and strong winds they are advising Delta BC to be on alert for flooding. Talking about wind gusts to 55 mph.

2. Heard from family on the other side.

Tri-cities got some big winds. Calm up here by Baker.

3. I live just north of Spokane.

The wind this morning has been crazy. Not hurricane levels, mind you, but more wind than we normally see. A windy day isn't out of the ordinary, but this morning the wind was raging. The local pop radio station I listened to said it was as high as 50 mph in some spots. I wouldn't be surprised to learn my neighborhood was in one of those 50mph spots. I drive a fairly heavy and low-riding car (not customized, just the nature of the car), and I could feel it being blown about this morning. I also heard that the wind advisory was in effect until 5 or 6 this evening.

4. This is what I heard and posted in the weather group. But it seems to have given up in my area.

It was howling on and off earlier but it's quiet now.
