Power Outages? Flooded Highways? Who Cares! Israelis Love a Rainy Day

You’d think it was Hurricane Sandy out there from the fussing about an amount of rain that a London or Seattle resident expects regularly.

The Israeli public prides itself on remaining calm under pressure. We’re used to having our lives disrupted suddenly by terror attacks, wars, missile attacks, local uprisings, international condemnation and so we expect the unexpected. Major upheavals that might make folks in any other country hysterical, we take with a grain of salt.
