A modern re-write of an anonymous 16th century verse : "O Western Wind, when wilt thou blow".
The "Delta" breeze, coming from the south or southwest, is what makes summer in Davis endurable. Whenever a "high" off-shore blocks this, the whole Central Valley becomes much hotter and over a week can become deadly.
My century old farmhouse is sited so the bedroom windows face south, thus making maximum use of the beneficent Delta breeze.
O Southwest Wind

O Southwest Wind, when wilt thou blow
That cool Delta Breeze up from the Bay ,
Comeing up the Carquinz Srait,
Mitigating the heat of the day ?
