    After a Day of Sleet, Rain, and Snow, a Rainbow over Israel


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     mitwersky, a reporter for the Israeli daily, Haaretz, says it has been nearly a year since he last photographed a rainbow in Jerusalem, Israel. After a day of rain, hail, sleet and snow, he captured this rainbow over the city of Beit Shemesh. 'The entire week in Israel saw extreme weather conditions, with up to three meters of snow in some northern sections of the country, heavy rain, and powerful winds, which disrupted power and toppled trees,' he says. 'The weather has impaired my ability to drive and travel from place to place. Many roads are flooded or slippery, and there have been many vehicular accidents.'
