Jerusalem Shut Down by That Four Letter Word

Finally.  It has happened.  Jerusalem, Israel, was shut down by one four letter word.

Everyone hid in their homes.

Businesses shuttered closed.

The government? Well, there isn’t one until next month anyway.

No, not “bomb.” After every terror attack, it is back to normal immediately.

Overnight the weather forecast was correct,

and this time and there was “SNOW” in Jerusalem!

The photo op, I have been waiting for, for such a long time…

While folks from Boston or Canada, make fun, saying, “This is snow? Four feet is snow, one is nothing!”

snow in Jerusalem, Israel

Our lemon tree almost touched the ground under the heavy weight on its branches.

But never fear, the snow plows were out as promised!

At least one driver got an early start this morning. Since the plow was going to slowly, he just had to pass and get on his way.

Maybe he was a doctor, the only other place to get to in a hurry was the Gan Sacher to play in the white stuff before it started to melt as the sun came out.


Real Jstreets

I lived in the United States, Canada and Australia before moving to Israel in the midst of the Second Lebanon War. For the last ten years, walking the streets of Jerusalem, the scenes I saw every day did not resemble the ones familiar in the Western media. Now I try to share those positive images with the world, what is really happening in Jerusalem, Israel, The Real Jerusalem Streets
