Thalj, thalj....

This is a video taken of the snowstorm that's hitting Hebron!

It's been raining/sleeting/snowing all over Palestine for four days now. I'm hunkered down in the guest apartment on top of the Hope Flowers School in Al Khader, Bethlehem.

I listened to this Fairouz song at Souli's in Ramallah this morning. Thalj means snow in Arabic, so it reminds me of the "snow" song from White Christmas. I remember the first time I heard that song at my aunt Lois's, it annoyed me so much. Snow, snow, snow, snow, shut up about the snow!

But I like how this one sounds like an old Disney Arabic.
