Last week Colorado Springs, Colorado was hit with winds going as much as 110 miles per hour. Now I've lived in Colorado for the past 5 years and while we've had our share of crazy weather, nothing quite prepared me for this. We've had snow storms, rain storms, hail storms, but never a wind storm. Semi-trucks were left turned over on their sides on the highway, trees were uprooted, power lines were down and thousands were left without electricity. I took it upon myself to go outdoors and document it on a Facebook live video and almost got blown away. Note to self, DO NOT GO OUT IN 80 MPH WINDS.
