While snow falling in the kingdom’s northwest is almost an annual affair now, it recently fell in a place far from that.
A recent hail storm left the desert near the town Badr not far from Madinah blanketed in snow. The aerial footage shot by a Saudi photographer, Osama Al-Harbi, has been reshared across global news networks.
It doesn’t look like Saudi Arabia at all!
