Crazy weather for crazy people?.
The Northwest wind on the east coast of the South Island of New Zealand is just that!. I don't know the technical terms, but it's a HOT hard blowing bastard that can drive people nuts thru ionization or something. In Spring, it is doubly a PIA in Christchurch through wind blown pollen causing runny eyes, nose, and sneezing.
I've heard Canada has a similar 'fern' (?) wind effect - through wind blowing over high Alps.
