It was so windy today!

How windy was it?

Well! It was so windy that the Eureka Carl’s Jr.’s giant eye-yanking sign was nearly blown over. So precarious was the corporate logo that Humboldt Bay Fire had the parking taped off until a contractor could come to the scene to make it all better. 

That’s how windy it was today. OK?
