Winter has arrived !

Water level and the shape of the Kinneret at the promenade in Tiberias.


After weeks of waiting and praying for rain in Israel, winter has finally arrived. Up north in Tiberias we had a stormy Shabbat accompanied by constant rain showers. Temperature is still bearable and not as freezing as in Jerusalem with its 9 degrees Celsius. Tomorrow Tiberias is going to have 15 degrees Celsius, Haifa the same, and Jerusalem will still be suffering through 9 degrees C.

I am not complaining and hope that finally the Kinneret (Sea of Galilee) will fill up a bit.

The Sea of Galilee needs at least 2 meters of water.
