Well, this is more helpful if you have a pool...
If the wind picks up and you're lamenting cleaning all the debris out of your pool once the wind storm is over, there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Turn Off Your Filter.
What that does is stop the distribution of water around the pool. Thus the wind is the only force moving the water. All the debris ends up collecting in one corner of the pool - a couple swooshes of the leaf net and... Ta Da! even after a crazy wind storm, your pool is sparkling clean. Cheers.
ps- be sure to do the sweeping BEFORE the wind is gone. Once the wind dies down, the debris will spread back out over the pool, thus defeating this technique.
