Lots of rain today and yesterday. There was even some flooding in Tel Aviv and surrounding towns.

This is quite near where I live. One guy rang up the radio to say he was sitting on his steering wheel, the rest of the car being under water. He said the police came to rescue him, but they got flooded too. Quite a lot of people had to be evacuated from their homes, and two kindergartens too. My youngest was very worried about this. "Did they drown?" She asked me. The traffic has been awful all day. I hope it's cleared up, because I have to go to South Tel Aviv soon. I walked to work so I haven't had to tackle traffic so far today.
