We’re being hit by a northern storm right now. It will be snowing as low as 1,000 meters today (the cedars are at 2000 and above). The highway peddlers in Beirut have resorted to selling earmuffs instead of their usual silly merchandise of CD’s, shaving machines and alarm clocks. Mind you, it is still 12 degrees Celcius here in Beirut, nowhere near as cold as in Holland now. But for Beirutis, that’s COLD!
The ski slopes of Feraya haven't opened yet, but probably will tomorrow morning. My brother sent me a movie of the family skating on natural ice. That doesn’t happen very often anymore, natural ice. We don’t do skating here in the Middle East (although we do have an ice skating rink near Jeitah), but I can offer him a sledding movie instead.
