Buried cars (not to mention buried street--where's a snowplow when you need one?)

Shira's Shots

That's what one of the Israeli folk dance session leaders used as the subject of her e-mail announcing the cancellation of last night's session due to snow. If I ever figure out how to transfer my photos from my new camera to my computer, I'll publish a snow shot or two. (Update, Tues., Dec. 28, 2010--see photos above.)

In the meantime, here are the lyrics, here's a choral performance, and here's a video of one of the two dances choreographed to Naomi Shemer's "Sheleg al Iri" by two different choreographers. Not only does the dance appear to be one that I once knew and had forgotten, but the choral performance sounds familiar from my days as a synagogue-choir alto--I think we sang the same arrangement, but at a faster tempo.

Wow, I really miss my hometown of NY. I live in the South now, no more snow for me:(

The South looks a lot more liveable at this time of the year. :) I will admit, though, that newly-fallen snow is beautiful. But when you have to walk or drive through it, it loses its appeal.

Wow, that's a lot of snow. I'm a true southerner myself, so I only experience the occasional dusting of snow.

Techelet, we've seen worse (not often, thank goodness), but this was a pretty hefty amount.
