Just came back from Phoenix. 65 mph wind gusts unfurled my main awning just east of Mountain Home Idaho on one day and the next day at Pendleton Oregon the wind took out my slide awning. Both are noted High Wind areas on I-84.

Yes I was out in L.A about 12 years ago on business when the Santa Ana winds were the worse they had been in 20yrs so I was told. Semi's were banned from the hwy as they were getting blown over on their side. Traffic signs were flapping like they would come loose and fly through the air like a square metal blade at any time. Sand accumulated on the road like drifting snow. It was crazy. Glad I was not in an RV.
Also have had to wait to cross the Mackinaw bridge as wind advisories are common and they ban semis and RVs at times. Supposedly a car was blown over the side of the bridge but that could be a myth.
I really hate the wind more than rain and snow. Its so hard to camp in the wind and try and have a fire or eat outside. At least with cold or rain I can work with it.
