Aircraft lost directional control on landing in high winds, exited the active runway onto sod median where control was regained. An attempt was made to reenter the active, but a 6' high curb was struck causing a propeller strike. The propeller was damaged. The curb was not visible from the left seat as it was on the right of the aircraft. Had the curb been level with the sod no damage would have occurred.
