      the worthless word for the day is: chubasco

      [Sp. fr. Port. chuvasco] /chu BAH skO/
      a severe squall of rain and wind especially along the
      west coast of Central America

      " In the semi-arid and desert regions of Mexico, Chubasco
      is often used to connote a violent sandstorm."
      - Roberto De Haro, The Mexican Chubasco (2007)

      ""If the conditions are just right - good, abundant chubasco
      rains down in Baja and western Mexico, lots of good leafing
      out of their food plant - you get a population explosion,"
      Donahue said."
      - Orange County Register, Aug. 7 2008
