Welcome back to your favorite little meme!
As you may or may not know, here in Israel we're recovering from a crazy snowstorm. Where I live, we got over a foot and a half of snow, which hasn't happened for decades! It began Wednesday night, and the roads have been closed ever since, believe it or not. Here's a shot from a brief break, on Thursday. I really liked the low clouds here, that match the piles of snow! As always, feel free to click on the photos, if you'd like a closer view:
It kept on snowing pretty much nonstop, all the way through until Saturday afternoon! We lost power and heat for a lot of it, but thankfully have enough hats, socks and blankets that we made do. I think that there are people elsewhere who still don't have stable power - scary! And at this point, things have iced over so badly that the kids' schools are cancelled tomorrow as well! Wow.
Still, there's no getting past the beauty or intensity of this all. I went for a walk with my husband last night to go walk his father's dog, and here are some photos that I took on the way, just so you all might believe :)
Here you can see that the new shade thing above our park has completely collapsed :(
Those are the stairs that we opted not to take :)
Here if you look closely you can see some brave kids sledding down this hill :)
Back home - one of those cars is mine!!
Here's a closeup of the beautiful snow on our car. It looks soft and playful, but in fact, it's completely iced over! Looks can be deceiving :)
Well, there are some windows and doors there, and so I'm cheating a bit and using these for my Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! post this week. Please play along with us, by posting your photos of windows, doors, or anything architectural, linking here, and signing up in the widget, below. Then go and visit the other players, that's the best part! Thanks for stopping by, everyone - have a great week, and stay warm!
