In all my life this is the first time i see this...




Desert and snow, this is the tunisian desert, this winter do extraordinary finish to deliver performances more striking across the Maghreb. This week, Tunisia has experienced storms that adorned the white city of Tabarka, Thala, Kef. The snow also fell in the palm of Nafta, in Matmata, Kasserine, and other desert regions of the south.and we have the same phenomenon in algeria and maroco, 40 cm of snow recoreded in tunisia, 40 cm in algeria and 30 cm in morocco, this is the first time those country have to face something like that,and Sahara, the world's largest desert, a region where temperatures sometimes approaching 50 degrees Celsius in the shade, in this period has undergone significant snowfall in the region of Bechar, in west-central Algeria, near the Moroccan border. Surreal scenes of palm trees that face the winds similar to those of Siberia.
this is just surreal what an amazing period...

i found a video of algeria under the snow very strange !

Desert's are extremely cold during night.

This doesn't surprise me, though it is still rare, the conditions would have to be precise. Rain in a place that doesn't receive much precipitation on a night that happens to be colder than usual.

Still a great photo and an awesome find.
