The Med City has landed on another Top 10 list.This one, created by the Weather Channel, lists the ten windiest cities in the country.

How many times has the wind ruined your outdoor plans? Rochester winters would be so much more tolerable and summers would be fantastic if it wasn’t for the stupid wind we have to deal with here in Southeast Minnesota.

Rochester ranks as the second windiest city in the nation with an average wind speed of 12.6 miles per hour.

So what’s the windiest city? A lot of you would probably guess that it’s Chicago. A lot of you would be wrong. Chi-town didn’t even make the Top 10!

Amarillo, Texas, is listed as the windiest city in the United States according to the list.
