Why Does Always Go That Way??????

I have a 24' by 60' RV garage with a overhead door on each end. Yesterday I spent hours cleaning and no matter what I did the wind only blew into the garage! In my 8 years of high school I took physics and honor physics and I still cannot figure out why it only blows in? I tried it with both doors open, one open, the other one open ect. Is someone smarter than me able to splain it to me?

It's a mental thing. For example now I just pray to the god in charge of weeds, I really would prefer weeds grow in the flower beds. In your case, beseech the wind god to blow right into the garage, tomorrow it will be dead still, trust me, the gods hate us, but they're easily fooled.

Judging by your picture, it appears those are ridge vents on the peak of your roof, and if your ceiling is unfinished and un-insulated (I'm unable to determine that), there would be quite a bit of heat for those vents to draw out by just convection alone that could create a noticeable breeze.

I knew someone would have a scientific explanation for this anomaly!!!

I have a similar problem with campfires. No matter where I sit around one, the smoke tends to always blow directly at me. ~CA

Very nice garage! Can you have your Northpoint and TV in the garage at the same time (with the doors closed)?

I just want to know why all the leaves keep blowing into my garage! It is a fully insulated/ sheet rocked. No vents.

Same thing for me whenever I try to solder something. The smoke ALWAYS gets in my eyes...

Because it's facing North and South and has laminar winds from Canada running South.

I did 27 years in the military. When we ran for PT, no matter which direction I ran, I always had a head wind. Run a square leg - all directions I was running into the wind.

Correct. Sometimes you are the bug, sometimes you are the windshield.

Murphy's Law: "If anything can go wrong, it will!"

Wind blowing where you don't want it, included!

Whenever I BBQ whether at home or while camping, the wind will be up 100% of the time. Before or after I BBQ it will be calm. Go figure.

The day we decide to put the cover on the trailer for the winter, the wind is non-existent.....until I get up on the roof with the cover.
