    UAE mountain covered in rare snow

    Dubai (AFP) Jan 25, 2009
    A blanket of snow has covered a mountain in a part of the United Arab Emirates, a rare phenomenon for the desert Gulf country, local media reported on Sunday.

    Al-Jees mountain, 5,700 feet (1,737 metres) above sea level and 25 kilometres (15 miles) northeast of Ras al-Khaimah city, was covered in 20 centimetres (eight inches) of snow, the state news agency WAM said.
    "Although limited snowfall was recorded on the mountain some years back, for the first time the peak of the mountain was fully covered in snow," it said.
    Local authorities said temperatures plunged to minus 3 degrees Celsius (26.6 Fahrenheit) on Friday and again to below zero on Saturday, The National newspaper reported.
    Major Said al-Yamahi of Ras al-Khaimah police told the newspaper that an area of five square kilometres (almost two square miles) was covered in snow. The emirates of Abu Dhabi and Dubai also had heavy rains on Friday and Saturday, in a spell of rare chilly weather in a desert state where summer temperatures can reach 50 Celcius (122 Fahrenheit).

            You need to have a talk with Mrs. Saw about her Chili recipe. I would say, by the photo, that she is using too much cumin or too much chili powder.

                We've got more snow this year than we have in the past few years, plus weather is a lot colder.

                We haven't gotten the couple of feet of snow at a time, like when I was a kid (and the dinosaurs roamed the earth), but we've been getting hit pretty often with 3+ inches.


                this morning from the back door:

                  I was in Dubai in 1991, and we were praying for something like this. It was over 120 deg. on the flight deck of the little boat I was on. ( I worked in communications, so it was a blistering 68 deg in my office), but i really did feel bad for those guys that were out there all day.
