how i’ve missed these giant winds. the kind that makes relatively young palm trees uproot themselves and commit hara kiri in front of your car, the kind that finds the tumbleweeds that were exiled from the western sets at paramount studios (the ones big enough to completely engulf a european car if so inclined). the kind that makes you lean forward with all of your strength to walk into them.
however, pants is driving up here in his fairly lightweight car through canyons and at the base of the mountain passes. where the 65 mph gusts are channelled as high as 100+. the kind to tear up your fence and whisk away your little dog too.
i’m checking the CHP logs and i haven’t seen any accidents, but i’m still a teensy bit worried. i’ll be glad when he gets here, and loathe to let him leave. but that’s also ’cause i dig him.
