Today, January 28th, it snowed in Kuwait!
Who would of thought, that when we decided to move to the Middle East, that we would get snow here! We both envisioned an arid climate with cool but pleasant days during the winter. However this winter, we have had a lot of cold days, but today’s the first that it has snowed in Kuwait! Apparently, it’s the first time that the country has EVER received snow!
**I should probably clarify, we didn’t actually see it, because it snowed in the desert, outside of the city.
Here are a few pics that were shared on our favorite blog in Kuwait, www.248am.com:
The snow was reported in the southwest corner of Kuwait, in an area called Al Salmi, near the Kuwait-Saudi Arabian border.
We didn’t get snow here in the city, but brrrrrrrr was it cold out today! When I checked the temperature at mid-day, it was 48 degrees Fahrenheit (8 degrees Celsius) with a windchill of 41 degrees Fahrenheit (5 degrees Celsius)!
Hopefully Spring, and the perfect temperatures that come with it, are just around the corner! But not the summer temperatures, because those are just too freaking hot!
