A rare late May rain in the Negev

MITZPE RAMON, ISRAEL–The only other time I’ve seen rain in southern Israel was with Elyssa Krivicich on our March 2008 trip. By May the rains are done in this part of the world. Nevertheless, it rained last night and then sprinkled on us as we drove south to Eilat this morning. The temperature has also dropped a good 6°C, which suits us just fine.

This is the 400th post on the Wooster Geologists blog! It is also near our two-year anniversary. It appears from our statistics (which I do not fully understand) that we have had 21,793 visitors and 163,072 pageviews. I’m not sure if those are unique visitors or what a “pageview” is, but I know we’ve had enough feedback to make this project much fun.
