Is it Miriah?

In Greece it is the Meltemi. Egyptians call it the Sirocco. In California they are the Santa Anna Winds.
I don't know what they're called in Italy, but the winds that blow the tree-tops sideways arrived here about 12 hours ago and have howled all day. The bike course runs parallel the Adriatic coast, so beach sand has been whipping across it since early afternoon. While sailing in the Greek Islands I once was trapped by the Metlemi on Tinos for 48 hours. I hope this wind blows out sooner. The women's start is 24 hours away, and the first men's start comes 15 hours later. The parade of teams just ended, each national team marching behind its flag, introduced to music from their home country. We got the Beach Boys. Coulda been worse.

Not so sure!
Hello from Annapolis. As I type, you should be setting up transitions and getting ready to race! I hope the winds have died down:O). Looking forward to the hearing all about Rimini!!!
