Gusts of up to 45 m.p.h blew wildly across Colorado Springs.

Winds started howling late Thursday night.

Loud wind gusts woke many people up in the middle of the night, while others had a hard time falling asleep.

Some destruction was caused from the blustering wind.

Weak branch limbs were torn off trees, newspapers stands were toppled over and some street signs were twisted off.

Along Highway 83, snow along the side of the road was blown into the middle of the road.

Snow plows were called out to the area to shove the snow back onto the shoulder.

Winds were even worse in the Rocky Flats area Friday morning.

Gusts were whipping at more than 100 m.p.h.

Throughout the day, gusts stayed near 80 m.p.h.
