It's raining

It's raining in Jerusalem, and raining fairly hard, too. Bearing in mind the long hard droughts of the last three years, that there's already been a few rains in Israel by early October is a minor miracle.

UPDATE: The rain lasted less than ten minutes. While it didn't quite bucket down, there was a steady flow for a solid five minutes. Another good sign is that the clouds parted and the sun broke out immediately afterwards; something that is listed in Megilat Ta'anit as being as good for the soil as two rains :)

UPDATE #2: It's 1:40am now, and there's been another short but solid rainfall. With any luck, Israel might get a little bit of a soaking every so often over the next few days.

  1. Although the fact that this happened on sukkot is not such a good sign.
