Santa Ana winds

Does anyone remember the national coverage that the terrible CA fires got last year? A lot of it happened because fires broke out right during these Santa Ana winds that come every year.

When I was jogging this morning invisible pieces of debri kept getting stuck in my eyes. I still snapped all these pictures, and that's just of my little neighborhood from last night's winds. The wind was so furious this morning I thought my bedroom window was surely going to break.

The first picture down is an entire tree trunk uprooted.

Wow, I don't remember it ever getting that bad!

Dang, I cannot even imagine those kinds of winds! We were just far enough away from Hurrican Ike to where we got some winds, but nothing like that!
