    Re: such, so

    a) or b)

    Wind is not countable. You would have less wind and not fewer winds.

    Re: such, so

    But if you put an adjective before an uncountable noun, can't you say 'a' or'an'?
    example: 'dinner' but 'We had a delicious dinner.'

    I think you can. But what thod00 meant was not to use its plural form when used in its general sense.

    A couple of examples where wind is used in its plural form.

    Northern winds haven't struck the coast yet.
    Winds of change are blowing hard across the IT industry. (figurative)
