cul de sac

While I was trying to walk in a straight line from College to Kensington Olympia, I was confronted with lots of Cul de sacs. Interesting to me was the way the wind blows in these Cul de sacs. The wind blows in and out the street this causes an extra strong draft. 

The word “cul-de-sac” has inspired metaphorical uses in literature and in culture.
