Noun[edit]

sarma (uncountable)

  1. A strong, cold wind that blows down the valley of the Sarma river (which acts as a natural wind tunnel), reaching hurricane strength (uprooting trees) by the time it blows across the western shore and into Lake Baikal.
    • 2011, Michael D. O'Brien, The Father's Tale: A Novel, Ignatius Press (→ISBN), page 749:
      “You see how the wind has pressed it into a hard layer?” “The sarma did it!” one of the children told Alex. “The sarma wind is mighty. It's so strong it turns ships upside down.” “Ah, that's something I didn't know. Well, we can thank the sarma for making excellent material for us." "The mountain hides our homes from the sarma," said another.
