The Storm of the Century - Aftermath I

By Tuesday, January 19, the rains had subsided leaving Mitzpe Ramon shrowded in a thick pea soup fog. In town the fog covered everything with a cold haze.

Out on the Machtesh, a complete white out wrapped the crater in a thick gauze of white.

But by late afternoon, the fog had burned off leaving blue sky with fair weather cumulus clouds.

Around town, large pools of water accumulated everywhere.

And a young Ibex wanders about in the post rain fog.
