We are finally starting to feel the change of seasons more fully now. Days are cooler and the nights and early mornings are brisk. We watch the skies hoping to see the change in clouds from those wispy, rag-tag things to the enormous, towering puffs that may herald rain.
Winter is usually a very short season here and with the accompanying rain (when we’re lucky), watching the water level of the Kinneret becomes something of a national pastime. It’s hard to explain to a non-desert dweller how water (or the lack of it) can be a such a big deal and why water conservation is a daily routine.
