The Answer to High Winds In Livingston — Call The Cops
Endless jokes have been made about the wind in Livingston. Sometimes it reaches near hurricane velocity and that’s not funny.
It’s one of the charms of that small city and they seem to live with it just fine. But many wish there was some magic wand they could wave or some government agency you could call for relief.
Perhaps there is.
A New Yorker Has The Answer
According a January 13th article in the Palm Beach Post one New Yorker seemed to have found an answer to the high wind that were loud and keeping him awake.
He called the cops.
He did what any citizen plagued by noise would do.
Loud parties? Call the police. Noisy neighbors? Call the police. Barking dogs? Call the police.
It seems that would be the best starting point to end this problem and get a good night’s rest.
His complaint was well justified because news reports said winds of nearly 60 miles per hour had caused power outages to 3,000 utility customers earlier in the week.
APB – All Points Bulletin
Some police complaints are often put on the bottom of the pile for later action. But not this one.
The Niagara Falls Police dispatcher took action sending out the following call to local law enforcement:
"All cars be advised, someone called to see if the police could stop the wind from blowing so they could sleep," the dispatcher told officers. "If any of you guys could do that, could you let me know?"
This dispatcher was leaving no stone unturned.
Who knows — a weather controlling deity just might have decided to join the Niagara Falls force.
The dispatcher was taking no chances.
Some Final Thoughts
Perhaps there may be a wave of angel weather soldiers out there just in case the weather gets out of hand and we just haven’t utilized them until now.
But you might want to save any future 911 calls for a more serious emergency than loud wind keeping you awake.
Unlike Niagara Falls, if you don’t like the weather in Livingston, or most places in Montana, just a wait a few minutes and it will most likely change.
If the police could do something about weather they’d sure have their hands full during an average Montana winter.
Who would you call to complain about the noisy wind?
