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.

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