I'm a hot air balloon pilot, and we're obsessed with the wind because it's crucial for us to actually get anywhere, and not too fast and not too slow. Windy is great because I can forecast the wind at specific times coming up, and not just on the surface but at various low heights. And I think it's lovely looking with the animations and colors.
