I woke up this morning and thought it was raining really hard.  It wasn’t, but I was hearing the Sharav – Israel’s version of California’s Santa Ana winds.  They come every time this year, and there’s even a legend that they’ll blow for 50 days from Pesach to Shavuot.  They’re hot, dry winds that blow east winds that blow across from Egypt. 

Anyway, it was one of the “hot topics” of morning session of Ulpan today.  Apparently, the winds kept some people up last night.
