Snow in the Sahara Desert - 07 Jan 2018
*Full story: https://www.rexfeatures.com/nanolink/tvw5
As much of the northern hemisphere sees record cold temperatures, the SAHARA Desert has been hit by SNOW for the second time in four decades. Photographers have taken incredible pictures of 40cm deep snow covering the sand in the small Saharan desert town of Ain Sefra after a freak winter storm yesterday (Sun). The town in the world's HOTTEST desert had not seen snow for 37 years when it arrived this time last year and locals were stunned when it began falling on the red sand dunes yesterday morning. Snow started falling in the early hours of Sunday morning and it quickly began settling on the sand. Photographer Karim Bouchetata said:

It stayed all day on Sunday and began melting at around 5pm."

Winter season is everyone’s favorite season.  There are good and bad things about the winter season. The good things of the winter season are snow, you can stay in and watch movies and cuddle, you can make hot chocolate, and enjoy hot food. Did you know that winter days have shorter days and longer nights; therefore, it’s a great season where you can do bonfires with family. People also tend to decorate their homes with colorful lights.

The bad things of winter season are that trees and plants stop growing; therefore, animals are short on food  and farmers lose their jobs since there isn’t any cultivation.  Homeless people can greatly become affected by winter because they suffer under cold weathers, it’s hard for them to maintain warm. On the other hand, people’s gas bills increase because of the usage of heaters. During this season, the afternoons look more like evenings. Image result for bad things about winter season
