If you've never lived near the open prairies, you can't begin to understand the winds of them.
With no trees to break it, the wind buffets you everywhere you go.
My high school was made up of many different buildings--one per subject. We left each building after class to walk to another building. To this day I shudder with the winter memory of walking to class in the biting cold Kansas wind. Sometimes the walk took up to seven or more minutes. (Now that school has enclosed all the walking areas!)
What about you? Have you ever experienced a prairie wind? How would you describe it?
