why do they call the wind mariah

I live in a tiny town. The official population is 127 according to the board on the freeway. Sometimes things can get really strange. The other day a wind was blowing through town. Its not unusual for Desert Center to have wind, especially during the spring. It brings dust into your house through every crack. It turns 18-wheeler trucks over on their sides. It moves sand dunes from one side of the freeway to the other side. Nothing out of the ordinary.


But this particular day, everyone was acting kooky. Not mean or cantankerous. Not jittery or paranoid. Not tired or anything but kooky. That is the only way I could describe it. Like everyone, who is retirement age or close to it, suddenly turned into preteens at their first dance. I blamed it on the wind. Which brought up remembering the song in the movie
Paint Your Wagon. They Called the Wind Mariah.


No one could remember the words to the song. I found them on the internet. (What can't you find on the internet? ) I found the words of the song on a fun site It is a trivia quiz site. I also found out the names of the wind around the world. So here is a list of the names of wind and what part of the world uses that term. Alan J.

Maria. (Maria. ) Maria. (Maria. ) They call the wind Maria. Out here they have a name for rain and wind and fire only. When you're lost and all alone, there ain't no name for lonely.
