Can We Have Some of That?

I’ve been surfing the internet and I came across a number of bloggers (in America) complaining about the severe winter weather.

I have to admit that I am jealous. We here in Israel are in the midst of another year of drought. The poor Kineret (Sea of Galilee) is so low it is heartwrenching. We’d gladly trade a week or two of snow (or, more realistically, rain) and let you have the sunny, 70 degree weather we have been having lately.

I keep checking the weekly weather report and I am happy to see that we should be getting rain this week. But so far the clouds have rolled in but no rain.

Maybe tomorrow.

    I like it when it snows. But when it rains, we’ve been trying to get the weather gods to ship it to Israel.

    Mother in Israel twittered “rain, rain, rain” today. Did you get?

    The worst thing is that there is absolutely no water saving here. People are watering lawns like London or NY.

    … and you should see the amount of water wasted in the Arab sector! It’s such a pity to all that water wasted. And the agricultural sector gets their water almost for free, so they also have little incentive to save water. What a mess!
