I hate Santa Ana...winds that is, they are gusty strong winds that originate inland and affect coastal Southern California. They blow mostly in autumn and winter, but can arise at other times of the year also like the past two days :(   Summer like temperatures in this arising month of May don't help .  
By the way Happy May Day. 

It's just been awful these couple of days specially yesterday to resume serious winds 70-75 miles per hour, air quality terrible, no visibility because of sand storms.  High temperatures and  no moisture means everything is very dry and lots fuel for fires to start quickly, Yesterday we were out of power for more than 10 hours, the kids got home and were like WHAT NO WIFI??  That was the worst part for them. It was so sad for me seeing broken trees all over the city.

We have one more day before the Santa Ana looses its grip.
I know we Californians complain too much weather wise because we are just used to sunny days, but I've never certainly experienced such hurricane strong Santa Ana winds have you??

I have to remind myself this shall pass.


  1. Looks like you have some nasty weather.

  2. Yikes! I hope the winds has died down. We get noreasters in my part. That basically means nasty winds so I know what you mean. However we don't have the sand issue. :)

  3. I have read many a story about the Santa Ana winds. You can really see it in that first pic!

  4. Oh wow, I had no idea you're fighting such strong winds. And 10 hours without electricty is a very long time! The longest time I had lately were 4 hours - and I was hungry but didn't want to open the fridge cause I didn't know how long it would last so I didn't want the fridge to warm up too fast. I hope the winds will stop soon!
