Allergies And Rain Clouds

The big topic of conversation is the allergy season. Lots of people are coughing, sneezing, headachy and miserable.

I'm still waiting for our post-sand storm rains to clean the solar panels. If we don't get a cleansing rain, the panels won't be effective, since the sand and dust prevent the sun from heating the elements which heat the water.

Israel has a good reputation for solar heating, since most homes and apartments have solar water heating. Nowadays most people supplement it with electric boilers, even in the summer.
