A couple of weeks ago, we had some wild winds up at the Mesa Lab. The instruments up on the roof of the building recorded a peak gust of 94 mph!
The frequent high winds rattle and stress the windows. The larger ones are prone to cracking and breaking. My neighbor noticed the crack in his office window before the wind incident of November 18, 2015.
(The window in the mirror image office across the hall from this one cracked last spring.)
It took three guys on the inside and one guy on the outside to replace the window.
