Good day to you on this windy Thursday…
All of us here in Indiana may be spared the rain that drenched parts of Illinois and Wisconsin, but the state is going to get blasted by high winds. If you step outside you can feel them. The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Advisory until 7:00 tonight. Forecasters say wind gusts above 50 miles an hour are possible.
