It's Raining!

Yes, although we're well into the second third of winter, at least according to the calendar, rain has been so rare that rain is worth announcing on this blog.

Israel gets the necessary and blessed rain only during the winter, from late October until early April, on average, and this year has been so far from average, it's frightening. Somebody told me that there hasn't been such a dry year for 75 years. Considering that 75 years ago, people didn't garden, nor launder clothes very frequently, nor bathe as frequently as today... this year's drought, added to the previous years' droughts are really bad.

I'm going to finish soon and turn the computer off and unplug if the thunder continues.

Rain on Shabbat! Perfect time for Hashem to shower Israel with additional blessings:)
