White Weekend

The snow started Friday afternoon, about two hours before Shabbat and continued on and off throughout the night.  We took a snow walk on Friday night after dinner, and then again this morning before it all started melting.  For several hours in the morning today, we did not have running water, but we managed. 

Now the streets are mostly clear of snow, and whatever small remaining water and ice will re-freeze tonight.  I wonder if there will even be reason to delay the re-start of school tomorrow morning, assuming there is safe-ish passage on the roads and sidewalks.

Jerusalem of Gold, and Snow.  There is something beautiful about the quiet and the beauty after a snow storm, it feels like a serene black and white photo when the rest of the days are a chaotic splash of color.
