The Santa Ana winds parch me and cause wildfires, but wow, the LIGHT we get when they blow. The whole town is glowing and yellowy and clear and sharp. I love it.

Recommend high mountains

Re your earlier post on driving fast at night with the top down: as your attorney I recommend that you drive at night up the winding road to Mount Wilson. There you will find a crystal-clear vista of the Los Angeles basin. The warm Santa Ana winds will blow on your face and cause you to pray, or weep.

I know! I was thinking this morning "someone cleaned the windows," and then I realized what was up.

I always feel as though the world looks so unreal when the air becomes so clear and sharp. Then I realize why, and that makes me feel a little ripped off by the fact that smog is the norm.
