How Close to the Edge

            Los Angeles weather is the weather of catastrophe, of apocalypse, and, just as the reliably long and bitter winters of New England determine how life is lived there, the violence and unpredictability of the Santa Ana affect the entire quality of life in Los Angeles, accentuate it's impermanence, it's unreliability. The wind shows us how close to the edge we are.
