Snow In The Sahara Desert, First Time In 37 Years

Amateur photographer Karim Bouchetata took incredible pictures of snow covering the sand in the small Saharan desert town of Ain Sefra, Algeria, yesterday afternoon.

He captured the amazing moment snow fell on the red sand dunes in the world’s largest hot desert for the first time in 37 years.

Snow was last seen in Ain Sefra on February 18, 1979, when the snow storm lasted just half an hour.

This time the snow stayed for a day in the town, which is around 1000 metres above sea level and surrounded by the Atlas Mountains.

Karim said: “Everyone was stunned to see snow falling in the dessert, it is such a rare occurrence.”

Man made global warming strikes again. But fear not folks, the high priests of Climastrology are planning to toss a virgin into a volcano to appease Gaia, just as soon as they can find one.

Frankly, I think Mother Earth is just angry because Trump won the election. Here’s her personal representative in Wisconsin throwing a hissy-fit over the Electoral vote…

    “Frankly, I think Mother Earth is just angry because Trump won the election.”

    Either that, or Algore was planning another one of his lectures in that area.
