It's been...biblical

Tel Aviv skyline tonight, viewed from the North - makes a pretty good desktop.

 

My first visit to Israel, working just north of Tel Aviv. Usual long hours cut down on the tourism and photo ops, but at least the weather has been entertaining.

 

The past three days have heralded the start of winter here, with the first rain for months...seemingly non-stop thunder and lightning.

 

This morning I was woken by horizontal hail hitting the windows, setting off car alarms in the street. Later on the way to work I saw my first tornado. Meanwhile the BBC warned of showers and 10mph winds.
