Santa Ana Winds

Dog snores,
nose dry and parched

Bushes rustle
under my window
scrape, scrape
like fingernails on a chalkboard
The East winds fuel their fury

Sleep cringes and sneaks away

Dog snores on

I've heard about winds like this which make people feel restless.  You get it across rather nicely.
