Few photos I took this morning during the siren at 10 a.m. I was standing on a very windy balcony on the seventh floor.
Driver in orange standing on the overpass of the Begin expressway.
Cars on Golda Meir Boulevard, near the underpass of Begin.
Three roads: Yadin Expressway in the background, Begin Expressway in the foreground, and Golda Meir Boulevard underneath.

I took this photo last year, from a balcony at work. At 10:00 a.m., a 2-minute siren sounds across the country. Cars, buses, and trucks stop and their drivers get out and stand at attention. It’s very moving to see everything come to a halt. I’ve never seen anything quite like this in the US or Canada.
Here’s a photo I took this year, from my office window. Also Golda Meir Blvd, but closer to the traffic lights. I noticed that the buses pulled over to the side of the road a couple minutes before the siren started. Good idea. It could be tricky stopping one of those things on an expressway ramp.
