Snow, Snow and more Snow in Jerusalem

Yesterday I was complaining that a 20-year-old photo

was posted showing snow in Jerusalem, Israel.

Then overnight it snowed in Jerusalem,

and snowed.

Black and white photos?

No, at times everything looked white and grey.

Lemons were still yellow, frozen lemonade anyone?

Israeli flags were still blue and white,

and at least one cat was out.

The Israel Museum could not be seen some times in the storm.

People came out to play and walk in the white stuff.

Nachlaot red roofs were colored white, as was the Valley of the Cross.

When the sky cleared it was a beautiful sight.

Some larger vehicles ventured out.

I got my Jerusalem snow photos, so please share them,

 I have had enough snow today for the next 20 years.

  1. We had beautiful snow cover out here in the Hills. But Jerusalem in white looked so tantalizing on the horizon. Wish I could have gotten in to the city somehow. Your beautiful photos are a big consolation. Let’s enjoy our snow and dry houses!

  2. These photos are just beautiful. I wanted to describe our scenes tfrom our mirpeset to friends in the “Old Country”, now I can forward the proof to them. Thank you so much Sharon, Shabbat Shalom,

  3. Fabulous photos! I’m so jealous. My daughter in Gush Etzion got some great photos – and lots of snow – while here in the center we got zilch. Just rain and rain and hail and high winds and very cold temperatures.

    On the other hand I remember how I wasn’t madly keen on actually being in the snow as a kid in London. I just liked looking at it from the warmth of indoors.

    Still, Jerusalem in the snow. Just beautiful! Hope you thawed out well after your walk with your camera!
