Jerusalem, Israel is preparing for cold weather and snow.
The Mayor announced a photo-op with snow plows,
and the Prime Minister has already cancelled an event
for foreign press to be held on Thursday in Jerusalem.
Even a dedication scheduled for Friday in Tel Aviv was postponed.
So I had better get moving and post this already.
One of the things that many from the eastern United States
miss coming to Israel are fall colors,
autumn, when leaves turn amazing colors before they fall.
There are a few spots where you could see leaves changing color,
but we have different colors in Jerusalem.
Recently we experienced weather so warm that the plants
could be confused.
The weather sure was wonderful for the record-breaking number
of tourists who came to Israel in November.
But now, there are reports of a serious five-day winter storm on the way.
From the streets of Yemin Moshe,
to the Wohl Rose Garden,
here are a few photos of Jerusalem fall colors.
Two years ago they said it would snow and it was disappointing,
but last year was the real thing.
It has turned cold.
Now everyone is waiting and watching.
Will it really snow?
