When we hear Saudi Arabia we imagine it as a hot place with desert and camel. That is true, the average summer temperature in Saudi Arabia is about 45° C, not the place you expect a snowfall.
Now for the first time ever, Saudi Arabia has received snowfall while temperatures dipped below the freezing point. The deserts looked like a winter wonderland, wrapped around with powdery snow.
Making the most of the unlikely scenario people from the region are celebrating, because who wouldn’t? Look at the pictures to believe in miracles!
Yes, This Saudi Arabia!
Snow in the desert
Not Europe, Saudi Arabia
No it’s not Antarctica still Saudi Arabia people
