Update: Melly and Family South of Haifa

Hello everyone. I am Melly's husband, writing from Toronto, Canada.

As Melly's last post stated, she and her family had enough of the rocket attacks and decided to stay an undetermined amount of time away from their home in Northern Israel.

They are at a hotel in the town of Zichron Yakov - which is just south of Haifa. I spoke with Melly Sunday evening and she sends her immense thanks and gratitude for all the well wishes people have been sending. I think it really helps.

She actually went outside for a few hours this evening - the first time since her arrival to Israel, as Zichron Yakov seems to be relatively 'safe' compared to the area immediate to the North.

Melly said she will continue posting once she can find internet access in her area - hopefully soon. She is not sure when they will be returning to their home given the great demand for hotels south of Haifa and other constraints...and the rockets as well.

Please keep checking back - at the very least I will facilitate in publishing updates, but will leave the commentary exclusively to Melly.

Melly's 'hubby', Toronto

Thanks for the update! Glad to hear she's in a safer spot. You must be a wreck with her being there too. Hope you both, as well as her whole family, can rest a little easier tonight.

Strength to you to, 'Melly's hubby.'
Thank you for keeping us up-to-date.
I'm glad you went south Melly, it sounds a lot safer. I wouldn't worry too much about posting, take care of your family and yourself first.
