Heavy Snow in Israel

With all that is happening here in the Middle East I find myself sending you a report on the weather.  I know that most of you are having terrible weather of one sort or the other.  But in over thirty years in Israel I’ve never seen anything like this and thought I’d share it with you. 

Jerusalem and all the central and northern parts of Israel are snowed in many places with several feet of snow. Connie and I have been unable to leave our house for the past two days, we went 14 hours with no electricity and the house is heated only by electric and the temp went below “0”.  No I am not crying about it, just thought you’d like to know what is happening in Israel.  For those who claim global warning, well we could use some of that warming about now.  Keeping in mind we are not use to this kind of weather and cold, this is Israel.

Joel and Ola stayed on the boat in Herzilya and were faced with winds of over 100 kl per hour, and waves over 20 feet, it was rock and roll time, and a full time job keeping the boats safe, not to mention their personal safety, and Ola is now 7 months pregnant. 

Unable to get to Jerusalem to take some pictures but I am sure the Internet will be full of them from Jerusalem.  I did take some this morning around our house here in the Judean Hills about 45 minutes from Jerusalem.

I know most reading this up north have seen a lot worse, but never in Israel.  

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, for our son Joel and all the IDF soldiers, for this Ministry and your part in it.

Shabbat Shalom, jerry
