Hanuka, and Mount Carmel on fire

I'm back from being on the road all through this week. Chag Sameah? Not right now, let's hope this blaze ends soon.

Disaster in the North: 40 dead as fire rages in Carmel Mountains

Forty people were kiled on Thursday as a huge brushfire continued to rage across the Carmel Mountains in northern Israel, killing and injuring dozens, among them prison guards and firemen.

Some 13,000 people were evacuated from their homes in the north and Israel called for international aid as the fire blazed out of control, fanned by easterly winds following a month of near record temperatures for the time of year.
