Yes, it was my poor word choice

It's all good, brother! Besides, it was funny to read some of the responses­čĄú

I guess it all depends on the angle of the wind in reference to the angle you are parked. Sometimes the trailers beside you act as a buffer. Other times they may help funnel the wind into hitting your truck more strongly­čĄĚ

You may also hear the black plastic pieces on the bat wings between the cab and trailer rattling or popping in the wind. That will also get you up until you realize what it is.

If it's strong enough and you are empty or light it will definitely shake in response to wind, as will your cab. I've pulled off in Wyoming due to high winds and it was shaking the cab. It was windy enough that it blew off parts of the awning covering the fuel pumps at the gas station I was at.

Why???!! ­čśë

I was stationed at Warren AFB in Cheyenne for 3.5 years, lived on a cattle ranch in Rock River, on Highway 30, 45 miles west of Laramie and lived in Sheridan for a year. It can be brutally cold and it's far windier than Chicago. It's pretty country in places, but having lived there I would just go and visit it in the summertime and expect snow, especially in the mountains. The year I turned 30 on 26 July, I was stationed in Cheyenne and was at Frontier Days. It snowed 4+ inches in Laramie and was 36┬░ in Cheyenne!

I just lived out there for six months. Beautiful country in some areas, but I'd never live there permanently. There were less than a handful of days when the winds were calm.

I've always called the area from Cheyenne to SLC, down to Albuquerque, then back to Cheyenne "The Bermuda Triangle" for driving.
