What a difference a few days makes. At the beginning of the week, we were still enjoying sweater weather in Israel, with unusually warm temperatures in January and February.
But Wednesday truly ushered in winter – cold wind, heavy rain, and in many places even snow.
While all this precipitation has led to some dangerous flooding conditions, closed roads and suspended public transportation in many parts of Israel, the white stuff is a welcome distraction for the many kids and adults who’ve been stuck at home for the better part of a year.
Here are some images from around Israel, starting with a video of snow falling in the Old City of Jerusalem.
