Rain - Rain and again Rain.We could not see much beneath our umbrellas.E-Ram - wet and cold. People are passing quickly- Cars as well. General Winter is stronger than "security."Qalandya south - no soldiers/ the path to the checkpoint is muddy and flooded with water.Qalandya north - Things are going smoothly. (One woman was stopped and had to argue with the woman soldier about her permission but was allowed to pass at the end). It seems that the women girls in this checkpoint are tougher than the men. It was freezing and R's fingers were in danger so we decided to withdraw. In such stormy weather, I wonder how beneficial we are at the checkpoint.
