Who's ready for snow?by michael • February 19 2008
Because, once again, Jerusalem is slated to get some. The storm, which wreaked havoc in Greece, is barreling in on the Israeli coast where it's expected to drop a moderate amount of snow while causing temperatures to plunge.
Two major snowfalls in one season, and especially so close together, is of course incredibly rare here in our modest metropolis on the fringe of the desert. It's possible that such freakish weather could be the result of mere chance and caprice, but Israel is the kind of place where meteorological phenomena are just as often interpreted as the will of a vengeful god or two, so Jerusalemite has to assume that higher powers are at work - and that they are displeased. Probably about that whole "no more real sushi" thing.
