The most imposing thing on this walk was the wind blowing across us at about eighty miles an hour.

I had it today too, near Kendal, although probably not more than 60mph. Still, it was enough to blow my friend's little dog into the air.

The eighty is from the weather report that morning I had no real way of measuring it so your sixty could be closer
