Gilligan's Island, Day Four

Woke up this morning to find that we had no running water in the house; apparently the main water supply for parts of Central Jerusalem froze over during the night.

No school or work, four days of the Snow Siege and I am running out of projects with which to entertain Raphaela, not to mention food.  The events of this Winter Storm have officially qualified me to win Survivor Jerusalem.

I wrote a song based upon a popular tune, called "No School Today":

No Gan today,
the snow won't go away.
It's one big icy plain,
I'm going to go insane!

We may actually leave the house today, first time since Thursday, to see if the bakery on Palmach is open.  It must be warmer there than the ice box that is our home.

(No phone, no bikes, no motor cars, not a single luxury.  Like Robinson Caruso, it's primitive as can be.  And damn cold.)
