    Excuse me please. There is a strong Windy blowing on the door. May I let her in, sir?

    Though grammatically correct, looks like a funny sort of nonsense.

    Fortunately, we haven't got Windy as a person's name among the options.

    Ohh....you made my day :D

    And yeah the correct answer is "wind" even in Hungary :)

    Re: Wind or Windy?

    There is a very strong wind blowing = A very strong wind is blowing there, where 'wind', a noun, is the subject, which can't be an adjective such as 'windy'.
