Wind Map An invisible, ancient source of energy surrounds us—energy that powered the first explorations of the world, and that may be a key to the future. This map shows you the delicate tracery of wind flowing over the US. The wind map is a personal art project, not associated with any company. We've done our best to make this as accurate as possible, but can't make any guarantees about the correctness of the data or our software. Please do not use the map or its data to fly a plane, sail a boat, or fight wildfires :-) If the map is missing or seems slow, we recommend the latest Chrome browser. Surface wind data comes from the National Digital Forecast Database. If you're looking for a weather map, or just want more detail on the weather today, see these more traditional maps of temperature and wind.

The Fairy-Faith in Celtic Countries Index Sacred Texts Legends and Sagas Celtic Buy this Book at Amazon.com Contents Start Reading Page Index Text [Zipped] This is one of the most in-depth and scholarly attempts to explain the phenomena of the Celtic belief in fairies. Evans-Wentz examines each of the hypothetical explanations of the fairy phenomena. We come away from this study with a multi-dimensional view of the fairies, who, much like the grey aliens of UFO belief, inhabit a narrative which seems too consistent to be the product of insanity, yet too bizarre for conventional explanation.
