Snow on the Arabian Peninsula

We have had a mild winter in Sweden so far. There is just a little snow on the ground now, a layer best measured in millimetres.

Meanwhile, in the United Arab Emirates, temperatures have fallen to three degrees below the freezing point and there has been snow for the first time since December 2004. I was born in 2005, so if I would have lived in the UAE, this would have been the first snowfall in my life. It is amazing that snow falls so close to the equator.

Weather is interesting, when it is odd. You cannot foresee weather, which is nice. It makes odd weather events like the snow on the Arabian Peninsula something to talk about.

I wish we will get more snow here in Örebro, Sweden.
