JERUSALEM - On February 9, 1969,  an epic nor’easter dumped 20 inches of snow on Queens, where I grew up.  I remember not going to school for a week or more because the city of New York hadn’t managed to removr the snow in the aftermath of the “Lindsay snowstorm.”

Snow began falling in Jerusalem on Thursday. By Saturday night, up to 20 inches covered the ground. Michele Chabin
