    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'.

    There's a very strong ____ blowing

    The correct answer is Wind.
    There's a very strong wind blowing.

    I have searched about the meaning of "Windy" that means having a lot of wind.

    On Google
    dictionary has two meanings:

    a. Windy: having a lot of wind
    b. Windy: having some wind.
