I imagine the only time you get them is briefly during a storm.
The issue where I live is that it is absolutely flat for hundreds of miles in any direction, so there is nothing to stop the winds or slow them up. Many flat desert areas, and prairies, have the wind issue. However, I find that, when the wind stops, it starts to get way too hot, so in a way, I'm grateful for them.....just not blowing steady at 50 mph and sand-blasting me as soon as I step outside!
