    Snow was on the ground for 5 consecutive days in a row. (3rd thru 7th)
    This morning, Jan 8th, we still have snow on the ground and 23F last night.

  2. Sahara Desert covered in 15 inches of SNOW as freak weather blankets sand dunes

    More than 15 inches (40cm) has blanketed sand dunes across the small town of Ain Sefra, Algeria.

    It is the second time snow has hit in nearly 40 years, with a dusting also recorded in December 2016.

    But this snowfall which hit yesterday, is much deeper than the fleeting shower little more than a year ago.

    Locals, who endure temperatures of 37C in summer, were stunned as dense snow settled on the town, known as ‘the gateway to the desert’.

  3. It’s always fun to watch an animation, especially if it is a 15 day animated forecast of the temperature at 2m from the ground for all of the USA (but from a french weather site)–

    Just hit the [anim] button and watch the polar vortex move up and down over Canada and the USA. Watch the pretty colors change as freezing weather is predicted.
    So when will all the Great Lakes freeze?
