    High winds whipped the Sierra on Sunday as an atmospheric river bringing rain and snow moved through Northern California.
    The most impressive gusts blew at 173 mph on a Squaw Valley summit and 175 mph atop a peak in Alpine Meadows.
    These bursts were far stronger than the 110 mph winds that were forecast to be the record-breakers for the day.
    What's more, they would have been tornado had they been cyclonic and sustained.

    Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
    Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
    Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
    21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
    And clever in their own sight! Isaiah 5:20-21 NASB

    Whooooooooa! Ridiculous to think that wind speeds that high can get to Cat-3 hurricane levels.
    'murica! Don't mess with the nation that needs medication!

    I had no idea!
