A friend who lives in Jerusalem started out early in the morning yesterday to capture all the beautiful snow-clad places, and now she graciously shares them with you and me.
Click and then click again to enlarge her photos.
The tram had its first baptism of snow!
And to encourage people not to attempt to drive on the slippery roads, the tram was free of charge for a few days.
The yellow JCB doubled as a snowplow.
The Municipality was ready with tons of salt to spread, too.
They had fifty vehicles dedicated to the one rare snow day.
We got about 25 cm or 10 inches of snow.
The palm trees at Safra Square, City Hall, took it well.
Everybody was excited about our snow.
Families worked together to build snowmen, this one near Jaffa Gate.
People kept on praying.
The Western Wall is never alone.
From the rooftops of the Old City, the gorgeous view of a white Mount of Olives and the golden dome of the Dome of the Rock powdered with snow!
Thank you, Friend, for these rare photographs.
Pictures of my white village in the snowy Jerusalem Hills are in yesterday's post.
