Early this morning, residents of Yerushalayim awoke to find a blanket of white snow covering the city. As people shuffled about enjoying the white wonder, traffic slowed to a crawl the municipality mobilized emergency personnel and snow tractors to deal with a potential blizzard my Yerushalayim standards. As people rushed to stores to get their shopping done before shabbos for fear of stores closing, children pranced around, making snowmen and lobbing snowballs at each other. However, by mid-morning, it had stopped snowing and the sun once again made an appearance, bouncing its rays off of the fast-melting white coat covering car roofs.
In other parts of the country the torrential rainfall has continued, which together with the snowfall has caused a increase of the water level in the Kinneret.
