The Jerusalem Hills (aka the Hills of Judea) had heavy skies all day but just now, at 5 pm, the clouds are giving their rain.
That's my village on the hill.
"Hilltop" and "Judea" might make you think of "West Bank settlement," but no--my moshav (founded in 1949) is inside the Green Line, in Israel proper.
The wadi leading to the spring at the foot of my moshav (village) is now bare, charred, and stoney.
After last year's forest fire the Keren Kayemet/ JNF forestry guys took down all the dead burned trees.
Let's see what new natural growth comes up with the winter rains now starting.
This post is for SkyWatch Friday.
