Well surprise surprise! This was a shocker to me, because I always thought that Chicago was the windiest city in America. Turns out that has more to do with politics than with actual wind.

With the wind predicted at 40-50 mph today, I thought this would be appropriate. It seems to me that every single day the wind is blowing in Amarillo. When I say blowing, I mean blowing! Today The Weather Channel released a list of the top 10 windiest cities in America and coming in at #1 is Amarillo. This is just another reason why we should be proud of living here in the Texas Panhandle. (LOL)

Chicago has had the nickname "The Windy City" for decades. I think Amarillo should now own that title! Even though Chicago's nickname comes from its political background, rather than the actual weather, it seems more appropriate to designate that to the real windy cindy.

But if you don't mind the wind, then Amarillo is a great city to live in. Four other Texas cities also made the list.

Here's the list of top 10 windiest cities.

1. Amarillo, Texas (Avg. wind speed: 13.6 mph)

2. Rochester, Minn.

3. Lubbock, Texas

4. Boston

5. Wichita, Kan.

6. Fargo, N.D.

7. Oklahoma City, Okla.

8. Corpus Christi, Texas

9. Abilene, Texas

10. Buffalo, NY
