ABC Wednesday - J

A J late and a dollar short.
That's what I am this week, late. Even though it is Wednesday still in Connecticut, I realize that most ABCer's post on Tuesday. So, here's a late J and not so creative, but...This is a photo of Jerusalem during a hamseen. Hamseen's are hot, dry winds that blow in from the desert and stagnate. They last for a day or two and then when the winds kick up but they are cool and they blow all the schmutz out of the air. The schmutz...sand!
Check out Mrs. Nesbitt and the other ABC posts.

I have not heard of a Hamseen. It is very interesting to know something different. There seems to be alot of schmutz in this photo!

Hey, that looks familiar.
And usually the chamsin/sharav/dust storm comes just after all of us have slaved away at spring/Passover cleaning.
