Once again, I cannot provide pictures because the snow only appeared on Shabbat. Last Erev Shabbat, thick snowflakes came down over Jerusalem and we had about 5 cm of snow. Yesterday morning, we woke up with no water. The water pipes of the building where I live were frozen. This happens because in Israel, water pipes and electric cables are installed outside of the house and not inside. Unbelievable for someone from Germany, Canada or other places.
Here you can see Israeli reality: Water pipes and electric wires hanging loose. I took these pictures in Tel Aviv but this is how it looks all over the country.
The snow is long gone and the sun is back out. The rain will stop today and tomorrow we are back to 12 degrees Celsius. All this may sound ridiculous to you but the truth is, we are not used to cold freezing weather and we don’t have sufficient heating systems.
