Algeria - Heavy snow has cut off villages and clogged key arteries leading away from the Algerian capital Algiers for several days, national police said on Sunday.

Djelfa, which had 70cm, was "totally paralysed", the Algerian Press Agency reported.

At least 60cm of snow blanketed villages near Djelfa and Medea, respectively 270km and 80km south of Algiers.

Global warming or what? It would appear the climate is fluctuating significantly as one would expect. Perhaps the next winter olympics could be held here..............

It's merely unusual to have that much snow, not unprecedented.

The Atlas Mountains stretch across the north-east of the country (and into Morocco) and this is where the heaviest falls were. These mountains are usually snowed on in winter, as they're very high. The volume of snow is more due to the severity of the storm rather than an intrinsic cooling down of the region.
