Jerusalem Snow Sculptures: Heaviest Snowfall in 70 Years, Rare Winter Fun (+Photos)

Jerusalem experienced its heaviest snowfall in 70 years last week.

The snow finally stopped Saturday afternoon, local time, but not before dumping two feet of snow on a city where December temperatures usually average 50-60 degrees Fahrenheit (10-15 degrees Celsius).

While the Israel Electric Corporation still works to restore power to thousands of households, and residents assess the damage wrought by the storm, at least some people are having fun. Across Jerusalem some extremely creative snow sculptures have popped up.
