16 Photos Snow in Jerusalem

A few weeks ago there was supposed to be a big snowstorm

in Jerusalem, Israel,

and the word “blizzard” was used a lot.

A little snow started to fall just as it was time

to light Shabbat candles,

so I only managed to take and share two quick photos,

and by the next day, it was all gone.

This week I did not hear the “b” word,

though a heavy snowfall was forecast.

The snow started to fall on Thursday night,

and mostly deserted.

if the warnings were wrong,

I had one ready for the Shabbat Shalom post.

Heavy fog and a white sky added to the wintry scenes.

Heavy snow stuck to power lines and branches,

Snow in Jerusalem stuck to everything

and just about everything.

Most people stayed off the roads in the morning.

The monastery in the Valley of the Cross,

a beautiful and serene scene,

was like a picture postcard.
