    If you're lightly loaded, not a good idea to roll down I-70 or I-80 today. Gusts up to 65-70 MPH. Supposed to die down later tonight.

    Just got into Denver from KC - high winds the whole way. Glad I was heavy.

    There's no way I'll even attempt it with only a 13K load. It was difficult to walk across the parking lot against the wind.

    Not surprised. The Windy app is showing a 63 MPH wind gust in North Platte and 59 MPH in Kearney recently.

    From the 145 Sidney I've seen 6.
    3 trucks and 3 travel trailers.

    Lucky for me I'm in a 4 wheeler on vacation and even in the car it's white knuckle driving.
     
    JC1971 Thanks this.
