Heavy snow isolated Jerusalem on Wednesday and covered the neighboring kingdom of Jordan as unusually heavy storms battered the eastern Mediterranean region. The snowstorm blanketed Jerusalem and reached as far south as Israel's Negev Desert. Police went on national TV to explain how to drive in snow--an unfamiliar experience for most Israelis. Children in Dimona threw snowballs for the first time in their lives. The Negev town reportedly last saw snow 18 years ago.

A blizzard swept this desert kingdom Tuesday, blocking roads with more than a foot of snow and causing scores of traffic accidents. The Amman airport was closed because of blocked runways, and schools were shut down. The storm left up to 15 inches of snow in Amman, where police reported 121 traffic accidents. Dozens of power failures were reported in the city. In neighboring Israel, at least 6 inches of snow blanketed Jerusalem--the second snowfall of the winter in the Holy City.
