JET STREAM WINDS OVER COLORADO ARE MUCH STRONGER IN THE WINTER THAN IN THE WARM SEASON...

I've been reading ATS for quite some time, and this post is an all-time new low. That's saying something! Congrats!
BTW, for what it's worth, it was the windiest I've ever seen it in Los Angeles a few days ago.
And no, I don't consider that strange.
Welcome to planet Earth.

2011 is proving to be one of the (if not the) windiest year in history. The Wind Anomaly maps at NOAA are off the charts. We have had many (if not most) outdoor events cancelled this year because of it.
I live in a very horse show/rodeo oriented area and we can't even get out to ride.

Im in the UK and yes I would say that it has infact been a lot more windy. I have noticed it more this year.
Even my young children keep asking why its so windy all the time.
My poor Rose bush has been ripped apart by the wind and we may have to cut it down!
Also I was in my local chemist the other day getting my hayfever tablets, eye drops and nasal spray!!! When the pharmacist mentioned that many people had been in with very bad hayfever this year. I said to him do you think the wind maybe making it worst for some people? He said it most likely is!
I have noticed myself that when we have warm/hot windy days, my hayfever is very intence and I really suffer with very itchy eyes! My hayfever is never this bad, normally just get itchy/runny nose.
So yes I would say in my opinion that it has got windier.
