Winds of Change?

Strong winds across Okinawa today, but fortunately no rain.  It's one of those days where it is necessary to hang onto the car door when entering or exiting the vehicle because the winds will literally jerk the door from a person's grasp.  I just drove home in these strong winds, but did not come across any accidents - an amazing occurrence considering how small and light the cars are here.

It still feels like summer on Okinawa, but I know that it will be somewhat colder soon (temperature will drop into the 50's Fahrenheit.  Could today's winds be bringing in the seasonal change?

Attached are a couple of more photos from my walk to American Village on Saturday.
