windstorms in utah

i do not love windstorms in utah. for a couple of reasons:

1) it usually means a cold front is coming to town, and i don't want to have anything to do with that. it's the end of may, for crying out loud!

2) if the windows are open (and they usually are), it means i'm going to need to dust the house tomorrow. the wind blows in at least two inches of dirt.

3) it makes the house smell like sulphur. not sure why this happens, but it does. and it only happens at night. last night jake and i thought we were going to asphyxiate.

i do have to say, last night's storm provided some midnight entertainment. when i got up to close all the windows, i saw all the neighbors moving their cars around in the parking lot because the trees were dropping branches on the cars. i don't know why this was so amusing to me. probably because it was 2:00am and hearing thunks followed by car alarms going off is funny at that time of day.
