It was no mere flurry that hit the area. In some parts of the region surrounding Ain Sefra, as many as 16 inches of snow fell Sunday.

More than a foot of snow fell on the Sahara on Sunday, shrouding the orange and red landscape in hues of white. The rare scene didn’t last long, but luckily, a local photographer had his camera ready.
