Exclusive interview with Kyle Georgina Marsh

Can you describe exactly what happened?
I was just sitting in my apartment enjoying a regular Shabbat, watching YouTube videos and talking to friends, and suddenly, my roommate says, “Quick, shhh!” The whole building was shaking. It was like being gently rocked to sleep. We heard people screaming in the hallway.

Did anyone get hurt?
No. We just folded our legs, sat on the couch, and enjoyed the moment.

Have you been in an earthquake before?
Yes. I grew up in Hawaii and Japan, so it’s pretty normal.

Snow in Jerusalem

March 2, 2012

I woke up this morning to flurries outside my window.

I have been told that if you’re out in Jerusalem and it snows, you should get home immediately. The public transportation shuts down and some main roads close because the city doesn’t have enough support to maintain the roads. It’s a shame that I didn’t do my grocery shopping earlier this week! It’s a double shame that such a snow day has to be wasted at the end of the week.

It snows here very rarely. Outside my window, I saw people scraping from the dustings of snow to make snowballs. If only they knew a good New Jersey blizzard. I regret not being closer to the Old City to take some photos. All the awesome sights must be neat dusted with snow, especially the Western Wall.

Check out this blog for a compilation of great photos of Jerusalem with a substantial amount of snow.

UPDATE, 8:30am:  I think I spoke too soon. It started coming down like crazy…\

UPDATE, 9:00am:  We leave the warmth of our dorm to do some grocery shopping.

Kyle bought snow-dusted roses from our favorite guy.

Broken umbrella, happy people.

Carlo, Kyle, and Elly, bundled up!

UPDATE, 10:00am:  The sun comes out, and it’s a nice day. Just like that…

10:00am - The sun comes out to ruin our fun.

10:00am - It was truly short lived.
