Blustery Map

Voiceless it cries,
Wingless flutters,
Toothless bites,
Mouthless mutters.

What is it? Wind, of course! You may remember this tricky riddle that J.R.R. Tolkien included in a memorable scene in his novel, The Hobbit. Wind has fascinated humans for centuries. It’s not just the invisible thing that creates bad hair days and carries away your newspaper; it actually controls weather patterns. Have you ever wondered where it comes from?

All Things Lovely recently featured this wind map, by Point B. Studio, that depicts the wind patterns in the United States in real time, as well as wind speed. Take a look and you’ll see where the wind has traveled to arrive to you.
