Snow in the Sahara

Iliana Magra reporting for the New York Times on snow fall in the Sahara. Apparently, it’s about a once-in-a-decade event:

The orange dunes frosted with snow look at first as though they could be images from a frozen moon circling some distant planet.

Meanwhile, access to Zermatt in the Swiss Alps is closed due to “once-in-a-generation” snow storms.

Winter is here. (Finally. I do love snow.)
