After several years with relatively poor winters, the winter of 2011 & 2012 has been a real winter. There has been lots of rain over much of Israel and considerable snow over the Hermon.
Jerusalem has been no exception with impressive rainfall, one false alarm predicting snow, and one very mild snowfall. The winter is not yet over, and we hope for another few cold wet and perhaps even snowy days before spring and summer arrive.
Here are some photos that capture the spirit of Winter in Jerusalem.
