When we changed to Winter Time here in Israel, most people are still asleep when the sun rises. But they miss out on the sky the color turquoise. This shade of blue is the inspiration for the Tzizit techelet. But if you wait and get up later you miss it. I captured the techelet for you this morning!

The weather report calls today for Rain and storm, but this morning it is a balmy 26 degrees,not a cloud in sight. We have just changed to Winter Time here in Israel, and traditionally we start to say the blessing for rain. Well I did bring a jacket but forgot the umbrella. We will see later on if we will actually have rain. So enjoy the nice weather while it lasts!

Well today is starting out nicecand cool but the weather forecast calls for 32 degrees Celsius. I am not going to take a sweater today. My advice is to go out in the morning and enjoy the coolness and then I will work on-line in the afternoon with a fan blowing in my face!

How to get yourself ready? These are my personal recommendations that I am starting to do to get ready. If they help you, then I will be very happy.
Well, first, make sure that your roof and outside porches don't have any blockages with leaves and dirt blocking up the drains.
Secondly, check that the places that leaked before, have been fixed, but if you haven't been able to do that, like me, then do a cleaning session under the leak and put a bucket under where you think the water will come in.
Thirdly, Make sure that you have enough food in the house. If there will be a big snowstorm, you know that the local stores will not be able to open. I will stock up on bread, buying three this week, and put the other two in the fridge. Look at your pantry, and make sure that you have food that can be cooked that doesn't take too much time. Get food for Shabbat that can be frozen now and thawed on Friday morning.
Fourthly, Do you have snow boots? Or waterproof boots for the family? Forget about umbrellas, if it will be very windy, then they won't help anyway. Boots and waterproof coats are what will help you. I recently bought waterproof spray at the Gali Shoe store on Kanfei Nesharim, 25 NIS a can, a reasonable price, I waterproofed the boots and a few coats and it really does keep the water from seeping into the coat. The coat may not be warm after an hour in the rain, but at least I was dry a few weeks ago.
Fifthly, Make sure that you have heat in your apartment. Call in the tech now if it needs to be fixed. Make sure that you have a backup system, if the gas goes out, use the electricity, or use the electricity if the gas goes out.
I hope that these tips will help you to weather the coming storm!
