Santana, Mistral, Kona

I've lived in a number of places with names for the hot wind that makes everyone crazy. Portland hasn't been such a place, but with global warming and everything,


Picture this:

at 93 degrees with a gusty, dirty wind blowing.

I mean, bits got into my coffee on the way back across the street from Seattle's Best!

Record high temp for the day, and not in a sunshiny, pretty way--more of a new-plant-killing way. This is not a town built on a foundation of air conditioning, either, so everyone's gonna be cranky tonight when they get home.

I think we should name our hot wind something other than "Northeast Winds 15-20 MPH." Like...Bud. Or Tonya.

'Twas. One of those blasting-window-fan kind of nights. In fact, it's 6:00 a.m. now and the fan's still going, and it's supposed to be almost as hot again today. This kind of weather is normally reserved for August.

I wouldn't mind so much if I actually had any decent summer clothes, you know?

There's one pretty much just across the street from my office. And they have alcohol! Perfect.

I don't think I was comfortable until around midnight. WTF Portland?

I know! What's with this? Is the globe, like, getting warmer or something?

I was counting on my fellow Portlanders to get that. Thanks!
