It's a small holiday, hence the small blog post :). But it is nice to feel like we've made it through the majority of winter (or, should I say, "winter"?!). There was mass pandemonium the other day due to the *possibility* of several centimeters of snow in Jerusalem! Some schools were closed, there were rumors that the main highway to/from Jerusalem was closed or would be closing imminently (Chana had come home for the afternoon and we were hoping she might get snowed in, but no such luck), and I had a question for a secretary at Hadassah Hospital, but she hadn't come to work because of the (no) "snow"! We're prepared, though--my genius husband brought our snow shovel just in case!
