Jerusalem of Snow

It's the biggest storm in decades; the roads are closed in and out of Jerusalem and there is snow or rain falling over most of the country. There are power outages and there are many people who had to be rescued from their cars. It's also beautiful and magical.

Meanwhile,  John Kerry is here again this time thanking his Israeli and Palestinian hosts for the warm welcome and for (literally) clearing his pathway traveling the (literally) treacherous road between Ramallah and Jerusalem. The NYTimes reported on the snow's snarling of diplomacy.

Snow is nice the way it quiets everything. Time to sit back and watch the bigger-than-words forces of nature.
