The shpritz truck

.

As seen from the Meitar to Beer Sheva bus this morning.

This stretch of  dusty Negev desert near the road  surely hadn't felt water since our last rain which was on May 8.
The ground must have been thrilled to get this spray of water today.
I didn't have the heart to tell the earth that soon it would be covered forever with new pavement.

One must feel sorry for that desert soil, considering what's to come for it.

Everything has a soul, and you felt pity for some bare ground. Lovely

How can they afford to spend so much water? Here we do not even use garden spray after 3 weeks of drought. Hope you soon get rain!

Tania, this is the pre-construction watering-down of the ground.
This cool website says highway type water trucks are used for compaction and dust control:

Our rain season will probably start in October.

Maybe the new 'coat' would be liked...

Yes, it's true. Sometimes it's good to delay the harsh realities of life. Would the earth ever understand?
