Okay, I've been thinking a lot about wind currents lately. In a lot of books with dragons and flying creatures they (flying creatures and riders, if applicable) have to learn excessive amounts of stuff about wind movements, currents, etc so they won't crash. Wind also has a large effect on weather and such - land masses manipulate it, as do large bodies of water. So, I present to you ...

The Wind Map!

:D

Now pause and revel in the coolness! Up-to-date information about wind movements in various areas!

*gawks at map*

Okay, that's all. ^_^

Be careful of your thoughts; guard your mind, for your thoughts become words. Be guarded when you speak, for your words turn into action. Watch what you do, for your actions will become habits. Be wary of your habits, for they become your character. Pray over your character; strive to mold it to the image of Christ, because your character will shape your destiny.

Ideas can germinate from the smallest seeds. Collect those seeds, and let them grow in the back of your mind. You may be surprised by what finally blooms.

When God takes something from your grasp, he's not punishing you. Instead, He’s opening your hands to receive something better. The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.

Yes, I did. But I'm back in MD, and MD hates me, so I'm going to try again when I get to Ohio.

This will be most useful for my nomads that sail across the steppes in ship wagons.
Thanks for posting!

Handy concept if you have a character who can control the wind. :D
