I've been working in Ontario, California...and boy, has it been windy around here.
The Santa Ana winds have blown in, with a rush. Lawn furniture and trash cans (and larger items too) thrown around with abandon. (One of my student's chihuahuas had a seizure at all this, and couldn't even walk straight for a few days.) Traffic brought to a standstill on the highway. People struggling to walk against the wind. And that's not an easy matter, if you're lugging a suitcase that acts like a portable windsail. Thank God for wheels on suitcases!
I head home this afternoon, on the heels of the upcoming storm on the East Coast. Some of my teacher colleagues have already had their flights cancelled, even though it wasn't snowing then. Hopefully Colorado airports are made of stronger stuff.

Carol Bryer Fallert's got an incredible show opening. A thirty-year perspective on her work, including her first art quilt, just started at the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts. This '30 quilts for 30 years' runs through April...if you're in the neighborhood, be sure to stop by!
