Sahara Desert covered in 15 inches of SNOW as freak weather blankets sand dunes
HEAVY snow has covered the Sahara Desert in a freak winter weather storm.

More than 15 inches (40cm) has blanketed sand dunes across the small town of Ain Sefra, Algeria. It is the second time snow has hit in nearly 40 years, with a dusting also recorded in December 2016. But this snowfall which hit yesterday, is much deeper than the fleeting shower little more than a year ago. Locals, who endure temperatures of 37C in summer, were stunned as dense snow settled on the town, known as ‘the gateway to the desert’.

Photographer Karim Bouchetata, who captured the remarkable images, said: "We were really surprised when we woke up to see snow again. It stayed all day on Sunday and began melting at around 5pm."

Last year’s flurry brought chaos across the town, with passengers stranded on buses after the roads became slippery and icy. Children made snowmen and even sledged on the sand dunes. Before that, snow was last seen in Ain Sefra on February 18, 1979, when the snow storm lasted just half an hour.

The cold snap comes as Europe and the United States froze in bitter temperatures. Winter Storm Grayson, battering the US east coast, has seen the sea freeze in Cape Cod, along with the Niagra Falls in stunning scenes. A spokesman for the Met Office said this morning: "Cold air was pulled down south in to North Africa over the weekend as a result of high pressure over Europe.

My children are in their 40s and 50s. You are thinking like a young man. In fact one of my grandchildren is down in your neck of the woods fixing Blackhawks and Apaches.

Nice. Will do. He is on the fast track as he is will liked but everyone. He is being fast tracked to specialist 6 months early because of his attitude and how well he manages his projects. He is hung ho and was an E2 before actually going into boot camp. He didn't some extra work once he signed up and got another person to sign up. Within 6 months of being in he was an E3.

Here is where I complain that metric is useless when gauging temperature. And stop naming snowstorms. We got along just fine with "The blizzard of '96". Naming every front that blows through is just histrionics.

A rare (but not unprecedented) snowfall in the desert is an example of weather, not climate.

At least you didn't say it's proof of global warming.

Progress, one word at a time.

Gee, Al Gore and his minions, like Mike Mann, are whinging that this cold "weather" is proof of "climate change" which is the new AGW because they can blame everything on it rather than just warm spells.
