As the sun set over Jerusalem on Thursday evening, February 19, the cold ice rain that had been hammering the city transformed in to beautiful snow flurries, turning the busy streets on erev shabbat into empty white fields of fluff. As the brave few weather the snow storm that is destined to be this years blizzard, the city hibernates, interrupted occasionally only by the sound of the Light Rail and the occasional jeep.
