How to use wind in a sentence?

  1. The Briton:

    The day was pretty good, but it was a tricky one because it was so windy out there, every driver was struggling with the changing direction of the wind. You're constantly arriving at each corner and the wind direction is never the same, so we saw lots of drivers going off.

  2. Pattison Jr.:

    I don’t have all the details, but to answer your question, no, it shouldn’t have been in the water if, if what happened, happened, this business has been operating for 47 years and we’ve never had an incident like this or anything close to it. To the best of our knowledge – and we don’t have a lot of information now – but it was a fast-moving storm that came out of basically nowhere is sort of the verbal analysis I’ve got. Weather experts said a strong wind was blowing in the region, and those gusts became even more turbulent on the lake because there are no structures to slow it down.

  3. Marc Broude:

    If your stories were real I would scream my dissolution amongst the searching soul; if wishes were not so unreal I would disappear, careless, in the wind; and if words were not all vain and meaningless I would tell everyone that life is a state of mind and we are nothing but what we have been told. If changing the world really meant something I would form a new fucking republic; and if truth existed I would kill philosophy; if god existed I would be scared.

  4. Football Federation Australia:

    The forecast ambient and Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT) for that match remain within acceptable ranges for the later kick-off and the air quality forecast is improving with the arrival of a wind change to the north east on Friday, in making decisions regarding whether a fixture will proceed, the safety, welfare and comfort of our players, match officials and fans remain our ongoing focus with regard to air quality issues as a result of these bushfires.

  5. Carl Sandburg:

    History is a living horse laughing at a wooden horse. History is a wind blowing where it listeth. History is no sure thing to bet on. History is a box of tricks with a lost key. History is a labyrinth of doors with sliding panels, a book of ciphers with the code in a cave of the Saragossa sea. History says, if it pleases, Excuse me, I beg your pardon, it will never happen again if I can help it.
