A pedestrian holds an umbrella, that has turned inside out, as she walks against the wind in Jerusalem's Mea Shearim neighborhood January 8, 2013. Unusually heavy winter rains forced the closure of main access routes to Tel Aviv on Tuesday, causing gridlock in and around Israel's commercial capital, authorities said. The storms were forecast to continue on Wednesday, with rare snowfall expected in Jerusalem.
