For the first time in living memory, UAE sees snow fall. Normally known for temperatures of 50+ C in summer, one would not associate "snow" and "UAE" in once sentence. However, the amazing thing did happen. You can read what AFP reported, as well as what BBC reported. Both have pictures.Although a relative said that Alexandria got snow 2 years ago, it was a mistranslation. He meant "hail". There was a specially bad day where hail accumulated in the streets in January 2002.
