Snow!!! in Jerusalem
The past couple of days it has been snowing here in Jerusalem. To be honest, I was not aware that it even snowed in the middle east, and I am pleasantly surprised. The entire city is pretty much shut down. The light rail is not running, University is closed, and only a handful of stores are open. The people here are all enjoying the snow and it is not uncommon for a total stranger to start a snowball fight with you. You have to be careful though when you return fire, because usually they have backup. Still it is a lot of fun! We have also gone sledding at one of the near bus stops that is on a large sloping hill.
