The weather went back to bla over the last day, and on the way home tonight a fog descended over the Jerusalem hills like I haven’t seen since my days in upstate New York. If you’ve ever lived there, you know the what I mean: You can’t see past your own hood and your fog lights are reflecting back from a meter in front of you. You are actually blinded. It’s just you and the car.
Anyway, after we arrived home we went to the mirpeset upstairs to deal with the laundry and lo and behold: We can’t see off the edge of our mirpeset… We had to lean over to view a fraction of the roofs and lights below us. I mean, ridiculously opaque fog right before our eyes.
Never lived in upstate New York or the Jerusalem hills? Check out these before and after pictures from the edge of my porch:
Normal night sky…
And they say that living in Jerusalem you are ‘closer to shamayim’… I say, heaven is basically on earth.
