A rare snow paints Jerusalem white

Photo by my friend "ester" who lives in Jerusalem 

Haha, the Cool Globes exhibition in Jerusalem was meant to warn against global warming and today the globes were covered with snow.
They were not just cool but downright freezing!

The capital city is getting three days of snow.
So far it is up to 15 centimeters in some neighborhoods.
See news at

My friend code-named ester went out in the snow and took pictures and emailed me some.
But it was a day I really wanted to be back in Jerusalem in person.
For more about Cool Globes see my summer posts here and here .

Fabulous - the snow, the Cool Globes and most of all the combination of the two. Lovely!

Peculiar, but not unheard of there! It's beautiful captured like this.

I remember years ago a snowfall in the Middle East- it might have been in Israel or close by- and seeing photos of people enjoying themselves playing around with snow in the papers.
