I imagine all of us at one time or another has been surprised by a gust of wind as we opened the door. Either we let go and the door slams out, or we get dragged down the steps. I had the top hinge totally destroyed by the wind in Cheyenne, Wyoming and got it replaced. I recently got some bent hinges when I got caught off guard again. The bottom of the door went out farther than the top.

Has anyone come up with some clever solution to minimize the possibility of door related damage when it's windy?
