B"H Rain Expected!

The Tefillot may have worked.  Israel is expecting rain on Sunday thru Monday, forecasters say.

Update from Arutz Sheva:
The Channel 2 weatherman reported Wednesday that the forecast for next week changed suddenly from "no rain" to "rain" and he noted the turnabout immediately followed a nation wide fast for rain requested by the Chief Rabbinate on Monday.

I wish I could send them all of our rain.... first day of summer and it's pouring. Rain expected for the entire summer.

According to the weather channel, there is no rain in sight for any part of Israel for the next 10 days. I hope for, but certainly won't hold my breath, living here you can't believe how far we have sunk. The faucet is turned off for a reason, sadly we don't want the answer why.

Israel consumes 700 million cubic meters of drinking water each year, in addition to the water used for industry and agriculture.
Three desalination plants currently in use produce a total of over 290 million cubic meters of water each year.
The knesset gave its approval last June to the construction of a desalination plant south of Tel Aviv. The plant, which is to be built by Sorek Desalination Ltd., is expected to produce 150 million cubic meters of water each year.
Another plant is to be built in the city of Ashdod.
Unfortunately the plant south of Tel Aviv and the plant in Ashdod will not be finished until 2013.

We did have a tiny bit of rain, after the Succos Bracha, and it smelled sweet. As much as I love this delicious weather (a big and welcome change from Brooklyn), we do need to replenish our water reserves.

Rabbi Lazer Brody is right. All we need is a little emuna and Ha-shem will come to our rescue.
Our generation is facing the hardest test of them all, the test of emuna.
If we succeed then we will merit to see the Moshiach without anyone getting hurt. Lets pray that it happens that way.

Yaak, let's hope they are right. The Weather Channel shows a few showers next friday in the north. Obviously haShem decides. The situation here is bad. Over the last two weeks in the Jerusalem and surrounding area some according to doctors 50000 children came down with a very bad flu. They blame lack of rain. I don't know if you had checked the news, but there is a huge fire burning up north, arson by the usual suspects. It's a tinder box here. Let's just hope haShem has mercy on us whether we deserve it or not. Have a great week. Chag Sameach.
