It has been crazy today, but it's really not too out of the ordinary. I live in the Antelope Valley and I'm no stranger to the Santa Ana winds.
It's just been exceptionally noisy today, the sound of the wind hitting my house kept me from sleeping this morning. I'd certainly avoid driving
any high profile vehicles if you can help it, though driving any vehicles in this wind can be difficult. I remember a few years back, my aunt's SUV
was flipped over in some bad wind and thrown into a ditch right off of the freeway. That's some scary stuff. I'll definitely be avoiding the
freeways till the wind dies down, not going to drive next to any 18 wheelers that might topple over on top of me. As for being quake related, I'd
have to say I doubt there's any correlation, but I'm no expert, so we shall wait and see! I've heard several claims of "earthquake weather" when
we get strange rains out of nowhere but nothing has ever come of it.
