1. Re: White Jerusalem

We can't post pictures here on Facebook - and I'm not in Jerusalem but am getting firsthand reports from people there who say it is coming down fast, non-stop and large flakes of snow -- you can start here to get a glimpse of the second large snowfall in Jerusalem in 2013 - there was a big snowstorm last January.

Keep in mind that a big snowstorm in Jerusalem still doesn't yield much more than a few inches of snow.

Only every 20-30 years does it really mound up to significant snow - at least to those of us originally from really snowy places.

It's slowed down a bit now but I think we're in for a lot more.

The snow I'll never forget was in 1992. I was in the army based outside Jerusalem and spent six hours getting back into the city in around 3 feet of snow.

Stay warm and be careful on the slippery streets, if you are here...

Brrrr looks cold. It does look beautiful though.

Take care.

Snow is a novelty here too. Like always Tel Aviv is on another planet, some rain and lots of sunshine but cold. Tel Aviv had snow in January 1950...

Wow what a day, and tomrrow would be even whiter. If I could have posted photos here, I would have. (My profile photo is from the snow on January 2013).

More snow pictures and after a lull, it has started up again and there is more on the way. this will definitely break some records.
