Galilean Snow

Last night it started snowing in our Galilean village. We went out to play in the snow a bit with the neighbors, all the kids were already sleeping. I was pretty sure the snow would be all gone by morning, but when I got up, just before 6, the snow was coming down. I called th rabbi who I drive to work and we decided to daven first and then see what the situation was. When I got home my wife told me that I should stay home and play with the kids, as school was cancelled anyways. The roads didn't look that great  so I agreed.

Then I went skiing. 

We live on a mountain and I thought that akiing would be a great idea if I couldgo from the top of the hill to the bottom. Apparantly, the angles weren't that great and it was slightly less exhilirating then a bunny hill. It was very enjoyable, in any case, even though I had to walk all the way back up in my ski boots.
I did meet a snowboarder with similar ideas. He is from Vegas originally and thought h would catch some runs.

end of the world as we know it

Neil Kleid. That was what I thought on my way home from work today. Just Neil Kleid.

Today they played It's the end of the world as you know it, by REM on galgalatz and, as always when I hear that song, I had a flashback. 12 hours in the car with Neil and that song. None of this was Neil's fault. It was my car and my tape, but still when I hear that song, that's what I think about. It was a great trip. I heard that he got engaged and I sent him an email, but I think it went in his spam box.  If anyone wants to find out who he is or what he's up to, just google him.

I know I've been absent in the blogosphere recently. I'm just over-beyond busy, even when I'm at work.
