what a view

This morning it was bright and sunny at 6:15 AM when I walked out of the house and got into the shared taxi to take me down the mountain. We start driving down and I see an amazing view. Normally I can see all the way from Haifa, the part that juts out into the sea, all the way to Rosh Hanikra, the northern border with Lebanon. Today all I could see were clouds from an airplane perspective. There was a huge cloud bank (not smog) stretching the entire way across and I was looking down at it, it was unreal. These weren't dismal clouds, we're talking real white and puffy.

We didn't get to drive through the cloud bank because the road cut down and underneath it before we got there, but I noticed that as we got under the cloud everything just turned dark.

We had the same experience today on our ride to Jerusalem. The mist and fog was very cool...going up and down through the hills.

My 8 year old said to me today - "We don't have school today, its MUCH too foogy outside!"
