Streets and buses are basically empty and people now returning from work are just rushing home. The weather forecast is predicting a huge snowstorm tonight. By tomorrow morning, Jerusalem should be covered in snow.
It has been raining and hailing the entire day and it is freezing cold outside. Every year anew, snow in Jerusalem is a big issue and let us just hope that the power doesn’t go out. 🙂
Hospitals have their generators ready and our mayor asked people from Tel Aviv and elsewhere not to make their way to Jerusalem by car. Special tires for the winter (let alone chains) are almost unheard of in Israel and in recent years, people from the coast got too exited and drove their cars up the highway to Jerusalem. Those fools got stuck in the snow and had to be rescued by the army.
My view this morning:
A couple of flakes already came down at around noon.
