I fly in the High Desert of Southern California. We often get very strong, gusty winds. While practicing approaches, I heard this interaction between tower and a C-17 crew, also practicing.
Tower: “…wind 200 at 25 gusting to 37, cleared for the option Runway 17.”
C-17 pilot after acknowledging information: “Does the wind always blow like this?”
Tower: “No (pause), sometimes it blows hard.”
