Comments:
With Liga Auzins. Noonish start. 55 F, clear, NW/W wind 15-25 at start, building to unbirdable tree bending 40+ mph steady with stronger gusts - quit as blowing dirt enveloped the area. Coverage limited to pines and lake edge platings by abandoned hotel. Lots of migrants sheltering in this area prior to wind blow-up.
