Wind talk

For those interested (and who couldn't find the word "tramontagne" anywhere), here is a definition for a similarly spelled word that I found : "La tramontane est un vent violent, froid (en température ressentie) et sec en provenance du nord-ouest qui souffle contre les Pyrénées et au sud du Massif central, puis dans le Languedoc et le Roussillon. ... Le terme de « tramontane » vient du latin transmontanus qui signifie « au-delà des monts »". So it's similar to the Mistral wind (also mentioned in the same sentence in the exercise), with the Mistral being maybe a bit more localised and severe.
