Santa Ana winds

Recommended Posts

I used to work with a lady who was not the sharpest tool in the shed, and thought that Santa Ana winds originate in Santa Ana, CA.

 "Satan's Winds"

 

The name "Santa Ana Winds" is said to be traced to Spanish California, when the winds were called devil winds because of their heat. Santa Ana winds may get their name from the Santa Ana Mountains in Orange County, the Santa Ana River or Santa Ana Canyon, along which the winds are particularly strong. The original form may have been an Anglicized version of the Spanish, Satana's winds, from the Spanish vientos de Satán ("winds of Satan"). Sanatanas is a rarer form of Satanas and is a translation of a native name in an unspecified language
