Tzfat in Snow

Filed under: Current Events — Reb Moshe @ 11:32 pm

B’H we finally are enjoying so snow here in Tzfat. I don’t see an inch yet though, not even half. Israel news say it is already a blizzard. The kids were off from school today once one flake came down. I will try to get out tomarrow to take some video but usually by 9am most of the snow is all gone.

I have never seen in all my life people so happy as they are today from flakes of snow. It is maybe a glimpse for them into the great lite of the coming of Moshiach.

We live on 4,500 feet elevation so without any snow trucks or salt, it could get slippery but we almost never see an inch of snow and it is rare the temperature drops much below 30degrees. I can’t tell you why but usually if it snows, Tzfat doesn’t get hit but only the mountainsides around. So this almost half an inch is a lot for us.

2am UPDATE:

I now see 3inches of snow. This is the most snow I have seen in Israel in 5 years living here.

7am UPDATE:

We have 1 foot of snow! It will probably melt but if it froze, Tzfat would be closed for a two weeks
