Watch as an Israeli Desert is Transformed in Just Minutes

Earlier this month the waters returned to a dry river bed in southern Israel. Elated residents cheered as the cascade barreled through the Zin, which had run dry years before.

Something kind of miraculous happened in a biblical land a few weeks ago. The Zin, a river in Israel's Negev desert, is normally a bone-dry bed of dust and rock. But following  heavy rains in the mountains nearby, the waters suddenly returned to the parched channel, which feeds into the Dead Sea. Elated onlookers gathered on the banks to watch the awe-inspiring sight, with one witness describing it as an "unforgettable experience."  After watching the video, we can't help but agree.
