Let it snow in the Holy Land

You may have already seen some quick shots of the snow that recently fell in the Holy Land but we couldn’t let the story go without marking the occasion ourselves.  It’s not unheard of for snow to fall in the Holy Land but it is unusual to have a storm that dumps between 15-30 inches of snow at one time. And that’s what happened.

The city shut its gates and transportation was at a standstill.  Unfortunately many homes lost power and 14k are still without according to sources.  But how often can you say that 100 tons of Dead Sea salt was brought in to treat the roads?

Enjoy the pictures below to see a sight not often seen in the Holy Land!
