The Washington Post posted some photos that were taken yesterday by NASA of the snowstorm Alexa that hit the region last week.
The white areas on the land are all snow, another wider photo shows that even a northern area of Saudi Arabia got a little bit of snow.
On a side note, the author of the article might have to consider educating himself a bit more about the middle east as he thinks “it is quite something” to see snow around here and our neighbors!
NASA’s Earth Observatory has posted a photo of the storm taken from space. It was taken Dec. 15, after the storm had passed and the skies had cleared; the white areas on the land are snow, not clouds. It’s quite something to see the snow across Lebanon, Syria and Israel.
