  1. Hello, Sharon! It’s a very sharp photo. πŸ™‚
    It is very rare scenery that there are wind turbines on the plains. Of course for me.
    I know that Chicago is called windy city. I think that it is caused by the fact that it faces Lake Michigan. Is the wind strong in your area in the inland? If so, it is serious in winter.

    Yes, the winds of Lake Michigan blow hard across the streets of Chicago. It is a windy city!

    Interesting to know, though, is the moniker originated in 1893 when the city was vying to host the World’s Fair. City officials very publicly bragged about the city in an effort to sway the decision and hence were thought of as windbags. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ The nickname stuck.

    Yes, inland we get strong winds with every type of storm – rain, thunder and snow! And sometimes it’s windy for no reason at all other than the fact that the wind has no where to go except across the flat landsscape.

    Thanks for your great comment πŸ™‚

    • You’re welcome, Sharon! I did not know about the history of nickname. Thank you very much! πŸ™‚
      Your post started in February. When I look over them, snow was seen until the middle of March. I thought that the snow is not so deep.
      The last snow was on March 31 (posted on April 1st). It was a photo of the wind turbines that I looked! In our region it sometimes snows in March, but it is rare.
