Play time

The last time Jerusalem was covered in so much snow, about 20 years ago, I was a teenager. 

I remember staying up late during the snowstorm, looking outside the window of my room with my brother and hoping the snow will accumulate to a substantial amount. The following day was something I will never forget. More than a foot of snow covered everything around our apartment building and we spent hours playing in the snow, for the first time in our lives.

20 years have gone by. This time snow came in December which is very rare on its own. One thing hasn't changed - I still have a soft spot for playing in the snow, even if I am not the one doing the playing.
