“There is something uneasy in the Los Angeles air this afternoon, some unnatural stillness, some tension. What it means is that tonight a Santa Ana will begin to blow, a hot wind from the northeast whining down through the Cajon and San Gorgonio Passes, blowing up sand storms out along Route 66, drying the hills and the nerves to flash point.”
— Joan Didion
I was on the trails early this morning in Griffith Park, Glendale/Burbank side. Beautiful morning, the sky a palette of soft pastels. But it heated up quickly. The prediction” 85-degrees tomorrow. 85!!
“Here come those Santa Ana Winds again . . . ”
