Snowballs in Eilat


Since school/work is still canceled, Kevin and Noah decided to come and spend a few days with us in Eilat. Noah is home for a week. They left early, and took a detour towards Jerusalem. Noah had a friend who needed a ride from there to Eilat. While they waited for him, Kevin and Noah filled a big cooler box with snow. ย Kevin said that if it makes to Eilat as they packed it, it will either be a new scientific achievement or the manifestation that G-d indeed exists. As I type, he is signing up to the adult Torah classes at our congregation. ๐Ÿ™‚

It was a big cooler, too. You see, when my family goes somewhere, we need big coolers. So we had just enough snow for a mini snowball fight! Grandma’s neighbours thought we went crazy. Maybe they were right, but for sure, we had fun! I was kind of hoping the snow’d laset till Sunday, because I always had a dream of visiting the Kotel (West Wall) while it’s snowing. Probably that won’t be now.

I leave you with a cute picture I stole from the Internet of President Shimon Peres building a snowman.

    Cool! Or should I say, “Cold!” Ha! ๐Ÿ˜€ I love snow!!!

    I love snowball fights, snow-people, coloring snow, eating non-yellow snow, etc. (as a female, I’ve never peed in snow.)

    Ha! What Kevin said made me snort-laugh!!! ๐Ÿ˜€
    HUGS and stay warm!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

      We have decent weather here, and my grandma has gas fire places. I love those things!

      I am not said I missed the storms and the flooding at home, but I’m said I miss the snow in J’lem.

    I think snow here would be fun… sort of. Californians don’t know what to do with it so I think there would be accidents up the wazoo.

      Israelis have no idea about what to do with snow. They are told to stay inside. Actually till global warming hit there was snow in J’lem every two or three years.Then a big gap between 2008 and 2012. Actually I am not even sure it snowed last year.

  3. Love the picture! Hevel, you’ll have to email em a picture of the boy and his sister that your friend adopted at Sonechko. I have a whole CD of older photos (approximately 2009-2011) that the orphanage director passed on to us, plus several group photos from other adoptive families who have been there. Maybe some of the pictures include your friend’s new children!

  4. Wonderful! The kids’ first names would probably be helpful, too. Looking forward to hearing from you!
