    Thanks for your wind warning. I drive a 2001 Prius, which is a light car with a high profile. Based on my experience with being blown into another lane, I won’t drive if the wind is 40 mph or higher. Even 35 mph is risky. I feel that some people think I’m being wimpy. Your warning supports my effort to be safe, not sorry.
