I noticed it first this morning, when I headed off to work around 5 am and it was already 44°F. That's too warm for a February morning.
When I reached the parking lot at work, the wind was so intense I just about couldn't walk against it. Now, I spend the work day in a windowless cube farm, so I more-or-less forgot about the weather until I left, and in the stairwell, I could hear it rattling the building apart.
Later I would learn the winds had been in excess of 90 miles per hour. Electrical poles near the IBM complex were snapped apart. A grass fire had started (the smoke of which you can see in the 4th and 5th pictures below). And trucks were blown off the road.
