#bigwindday Big Wind Day

Date When Celebrated : Always April 12th

Big Wind Day commemorates the highest wind speed ever recorded on the planet. Can you guess where? No, it wasn't in the middle of a hurricane or a tornado.

On April 12, 1934, the staff of the Mount Washington Observatory recorded the highest surface wind ever measured, anywhere on earth. This big wind was officially recorded at 231 miles per hour. Imagine the difficulties of even making a recording under those conditions back then!

Will this record ever be broken? Perhaps, but until then, enjoy Big Wind Day.
Not the "Big Wind" you expected- - When talking to the family about documenting "Big Wind" day, family members teased "quick everyone, get out of the room!" Origin of "Big Wind Day":
While we discovered why this day was created, we don't know who created it, or when. Perhaps, the records of it's creation are "Gone with the Wind".

Did you know today is Big Wind Day? This day actually lived up to its name. The wind has been blowin’ here in SoCal all day. Did anyone go out during today’s FARKL or Thirsty Thursday Beer Can races? If you did, did you reef either your headsail or main? That’s what WSA-OC member Val is doing aboard Sognatore in building winds pulling into Ling Beach Harbor at dusk.

National Big Wind Day. On the morning of April 12, 1934, three weather surveyors at the observatory on Mt. Washington in New Hampshire, recorded the highest velocity natural wind ever measured on Earth. The “big wind,” which reached 231 miles per hour, is commemorated each year on this date. #nationalbigwindday #bigwindday #bigwind #national #big #wind #day

People often ask if our pond fluctuates in temperature. They assume that cold air means a colder pond. In actuality, the single biggest variable to pond temperature is wind. So, when the wind picks up, expect the pond to cool off for a bit until we can pump more hot water in. Or, opt instead for one of our you-fill bathhouses (where wind matters not)! #BigWindDay #GoSoaking #Bathhouses

Today is #NationalBigWindDay - On April 12, 1934, the highest natural wind gust measured on the Earth’s surface was recorded at the Mount Washington Observatory. It was a gust of wind with a speed of 372 km/h (231 mph).
Did you know? At our wind facilities, TransAlta records wind speeds in real-time using anemometers (wind velocity measurement devices). Situated on top of the nacelle of a wind turbine, information from the anemometers is sent to the turbine control to pitch the blades in such a way as to let the wind flow through.

We're celebrating #BigWindDay with this master of the ceiling. The Hunter Industrial Titan ceiling fan pushes air into every nook and cranny of any facility – slowly, steadily and silently dominating output with its colossal blade span of 24 feet! #industrial #ceilingfans

🌬It’s National Big Wind Day!💨 On this date in 1934, the highest natural wind gust on the Earth’s surface were measured at the Mount Washington Observatory. It was 231 miles per hour!💨 Our spring winds are blowing all the pretty blossoms off the trees.🌸 At worst they pull some roofing off, knock down fences and tip over garbage cans. At best, a random ball will roll into our yard!💨⚽️ #nationalbigwindday #bigwindday #windyday #tricolorcorgi #blueeyedcorgi #corgi #corgis #corgination #corgisofinstagram #corgiscarves #breezy #goodbyeapricotblossoms #hellorandomball

It’s #BigWindDay and we can’t think of a bigger wind in our village than when all of the pipers gather on Celtic Weekend. Photo credit: @evanskirt #AlsoLoud #SoManyBagpipers #BagpipeDrumCompetition #BattleOfTheBayou #EUSPBA #RenFestOnYourMind

DE 🇩🇪 (🇬🇧 ⬇️): Zum heutigen Tag des starken Windes ein Foto, welches die Auswirkungen des Sturmes #Xynthia zeigt und auch dem THW Karlsruhe reichlich Arbeit bescherte. Das Sturmtief fegte 2010 u. a. über Deutschland und forderte über 60 Todesopfer. Bei Schäden über 4,5 Milliarden Euro waren 2,2 Milliarden nicht versichert. Der Tag des starken Windes erinnert an den stärksten jemals gemessen Bodenwind am 12. April 1934. An diesem Tag konnte das Mount Washington Observatory einen Bodenwind mit einer Geschwindigkeit von 372 km/h messen. .

Wind power is a good source of electricity because it is a renewable source and is constantly replenishing itself. #BigWindDay
