Snowfall In Cairo: First time In More Than 100 Years

By: Alexandria Sardam - December 15, 2013

Cairo isn’t looking like its normal self lately. That’s because Cairo has been completely transformed into a majestic-looking winter wonderland. That’s right, a storm in the Middle East gave the gift of snow this holiday marking it the first snowfall in over 100 years.

Cairo’s temperatures aren’t traditionally paired with the snowy, winter weather so it’s been a shock to many. It’s been such an unusual occurrence that people have been snapping pictures of the snowy conditions, but be mindful-many have been photoshopped.

Check out some actual pics of the chilly conditions here.

What do you think of these snowy conditions?
