In California, we have these crazy winds. They made my high school uniform a pain. Short skirts and high winds don’t go together so well. They dry out vegetation and wildfires are more common when they’re blowing. They cause property damage, make driving more difficult, and knock out power.
Regardless of all this, I love these desert winds. They come whipping out of the canyon behind our house and buffet our house. It sounds like a ship at sea in the middle of a storm. I feel like I’m in an adventure novel at night without any of the crazy rocking back and forth. It always gives me the best dreams.
