On the other hand

The change of seasons in Israel is usually not a gradual transition but more like an abrupt switch.

That is why winter arrives after a very short autumn (or fall if you are American), and the temperatures suddenly plummet. Spring is heralded by trees blossoming and is closely followed by soaring temperatures and the advent of summer again.

It is, therefore, accurate to say that the seasons change with a bang rather than a gentle climatic event.

This year, spring had hardly sprung when the booms and bangs of Iranian drones and missiles heralded the most dramatic change we have ever experienced. Sure enough, following this cacophony of sound, summer temperatures arrived, and we can expect a hot Pesach, possibly in more ways than one.

Our local Post Office has a notice taped to the door advising customers that as the place has now been cleaned for the Chag no chametz (leaven) products should be brought into the place.

This is definitely an only in Israel experience.
