Watch the winds across Empordà

I’ve mentioned the Tramuntana before. It’s a wicked wind that blows through Empordà pretty much all the time. Apparently it also exists with the same name up in Southern France, which makes sense as the name is a derivative of “from the mountain” meaning that it’s a cold, bastard wind. It’s hard to really put it in to words though, which is why I took a video from the terrace of my in-laws place in Figueres to show how it sweeps across the plane. This video is obviously sped up a great deal, but at the same time, it illustrates the constant churning of this wind and why it tosses around any flight I take when coming in for a landing in Girona or Barcelona.
