Cold camels

On Friday, it snowed in Cairo for the first time in 112 years! Other areas of the Middle East were also blanketed (or bucketed) with a rare snowfall, Allowing the residents to make snowmen, have snowball fights, and admire icicles (SLIDESHOW HERE). But with nearly 3' (1 m) of the white stuff in Jerusalem, closing roads, stranding motorists, and causing power outages; severe weather in Turkey, Jordan, and the West Bank; and the snow and sub-freezing conditions making things even more difficult for tens of thousands of Syrian refugees in Lebanon, I guess cold camels were the least of their concerns.
