    desert is a landscape or region of land that is very dry because of low rainfall amounts (precipitation)‚ often has little coverage by plants‚ and in which streams dry up unless they are supplied by water from outside areas.[1] Deserts can also be described as areas where more water is lost by evapotranspiration than falls as precipitation.[2] Desert plants must have special adaptations to survive with this little water. Deserts take up about one third (33%) of the Earth’s land surface.[3] Bottomlands

    Desert Places by Robert Frost Snow falling and night falling fast‚ oh‚ fast In a field I looked into going past‚ And the ground almost covered smooth in snow‚ But a few weeds and stubble showing last. The woods around it have it - it is theirs. All animals are smothered in their lairs. I am too absent-spirited to count; The loneliness includes me unawares. And lonely as it is‚ that loneliness Will be more lonely ere it will be less - A blanker whiteness of benighted snow

This causes for heat to raise which in turn causes low pressure. Then‚ the air that moves out of these “lows‚” toward
