A squall is a sudden, sharp increase in wind speed. I'm not trying to be picky or critical, it's just that terminology makes quite a difference to some people, amongst them those of us who have worked so hard on our gardens. More importantly, my family must evacuate when the power goes out due to life sustaining equipment in the house. I'm glad that you explained more accurately in the body of the article. You had me nervous there for a second! =)
