As to why "fixing to" became popular in place of "preparing to," "getting ready to," or "about to," consider this commentary from Maximilian Schele De Vere, Americanisms: The English of the New World Fix , to, may be safely called the American word of words, since there is probably no action whatever, performed by mind or body, which is not represented at some time or other by the universal term.

If that is so, what we think is a change in the winds direction might just be the wind moving up, over, around or following the terrain in a given area. This can cause momentary shifts or swirls in the wind. Unfortunately, in my game s those swirls and shifts tend to be in favor of the animals much more often than they are to me.
