    I received this as part of the Embassy of Israel Newsletter - 11 January 2013 which I get.

    ' Yesterday, Jerusalemites woke up to a white morning – the weatherman’s promises were kept and many parts of the city are covered with many inches of wonderfully bright snow. Jerusalem had to wait 10 years for this kind snow, and it was surely worth the wait.

    President Shimon Peres came outside to enjoy the snow after his security guards built a snowman at the entrance to the presidential residence in Jerusalem:

    President Peres stated: “I share the excitement and joy of the residents of Jerusalem who have waited so long for snow like this. Jerusalem is beautiful in any colour but is very special in white – this is Jerusalem of Snow, the beautiful white snow unites the city in heart and soul. I know that everyone praises the beauty of Switzerland but today we have Israeli pride, I’ll remind everyone that these beautiful scenes are ours, these are the beautiful scenes of the land of Israel. I know there are also some citizens suffering today due to the weather, my thoughts and support are with you and I hope everything returns to normal soon”.

    [I hope Israel gets lots of pleasure from this - they deserve it .. :eusa_angel:]

    I'm jealous of them, I wanted snow, too!

    Sad for the people of Bat Hefer, though. Hundreds of houses lost and destroyed by flood[​IMG]

    Hope they'll built up everything, soon.

    weird weather-----there are some lines ---in one of the more prominent
    Shakesperean plays------Uhm ?? maybe JULIUS CEASAR ---???
    or maybe ----Macbeth ?? that describes weird weather and
    astrological happenings as a PREDICTOR OF DISASTER

    sheeeeeessh------poetically,,, of course The weird
    weather thing seems to be going on in many parts of the world

    I would definitely consider it an omen considering everything that is happening right now. Interesting as I didn't know about that connection between weird weather -etc, predicting disasters. - Jeremiah
