The Holy City of Jerusalem has been covered in a brilliant white blanket after the worst snowstorm in 20 years.

Schools and highways have been closed as up to eight inches of snow piled up in the city centre by this afternoon.

Israel and much of the surrounding region has been hit by five days of rain, wind and snow as temperatures have dipped below freezing.

Oh good, now we can swing the pendulum back to: The Coming Ice Age. Which, I believe is what they were pushing in the 70's.

Although, if I can keep up with these people, I believe they put severe snow into the "global warming" category; cause, the warming causes severe weather including snow??? It is hard to follow the logic.

“Wonder if God is going to put up his train set.”

I love that comment. Funny, but I really wanted to put up my childhood train set for my family this Christmas, but just didn’t get to it. I have to get my priorities straight!

I think Socialists are moving back to “Overpopulation” as their next reason for implementing theft.

The coastal cities, such as Tel Aviv, never get any snow. Jerusalem is up in the mountains, so it sometimes gets a little snow, but hardly ever more than an inch.

Rueters:

Children makes snow angles

Notice the difference in the snowmen the Jews build and the snowmen the falsestinians build?
Jews: Carrots, scarves, and hats.
falsies: PA flags, masks, and weapons.

My kids used to put Hershey’s kisses on the flat cars, and promoted one to be the engineer. I miss those days.

We had over a foot last week, but the January thaw has started, and will be here for a week.

Slush! My not favorite!

And Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, the son of a valiant man, of Kabzeel, who had done many acts, he slew two lionlike men of Moab: he went down also and slew a lion in the midst of a pit in time of snow:

One Israeli once told me that, of the all the verses in the Bible, that's the only one we can be sure is true, because if anyone was going to make up a story, they would never include such an unbelievable detail as snow in Israel.
