It’s 6 p.m., and all the Israeli news can report about is the impending ‘snow storm’. It’s been hyped about all day, with news reporters actually looking excited as the students who await instruction to stay home from school tomorrow.
The sky has been eerie and gray and has given an extra-apocalyptic feel to the whole weather prediction of Jerusalem. Many people worked from home today and others prepared to leave early to avoid harsh driving conditions.
As a former New Yorker, I’m enjoying all this on multiple levels… But I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t childishly excited for the winter’s day of my youth. Plus, my husband has yet to experience his first real snow storm. We’ll see if this one lives up to the hype, though in Israel, it’s pretty rare that they do.
