Jerusalem after a very Wet Week

Last week it rained, and then it rained some more.

Today the new members of the 19th session of the Israeli Knesset

eagerly await to be sworn in.

Those people who stayed up all night to watch the Super Bowl live 

are suffering from football fatigue and moving slower than usual.

But for most people, after a week of rain and grey clouds,

 the big excitement is that sun came out and the sky was bright blue.

Runners were not the only ones out on the streets;

 many people were happy to be able to walk outside again.

Even little babies seemed to enjoy the warm temperatures.


I love that a rose in the garden is budding in the middle of winter

and that flowers are blooming in so many small parks.

But I hate that these steps are usually blocked by a parked car.

Free parking is hard to find in Jerusalem, but still, it is real chutzpah

to constantly block access to stairs leading to a public park.

And what would Jerusalem be,

without cats out enjoying the weather too?

It is clouding over again, so better get going before the rain starts.

Yes, we need rain, but people do smile more when the sun is shining.

    Awesome Jerusalem. Nice when it rains and nice when it’s sunny. I wish I will visit again. Some day I will come.

    Great shots. Roses come up through the snow in Jerusalem. Keep smiling even through the rain and cold.
