As part of a discussion about in which direction of the city may one set up a tannery due to the bad smell and the direction that the winds travel, the gemara goes off on a tangent regarding the strengths of each of the winds (the 4 directions).  From there, the gemara brings a braita that attempts to explain why we only see the sun during the day and also why summer days and winter days have different amounts of sunlight/daytime hours.  One must distance a tree from a neighbor’s pit as the roots will damage the pit.  Details of this law are discussed.
