Re: I bet they were surprised - snow in Saudi Arabia

Attended a training course in the UK for a Swedish company I was doing some work for. One guy was from Malaysia and got really excited when it started to snow - so much so that he insisted on going outside to see what if felt like. The look on the faces of the couple from head office was something to behold. They thought he was crackers!  Crazy2  

I know where I am, I've been lost here before.

Re: I bet they were surprised - snow in Saudi Arabia

There was a gap of about twelve years (1991 to 2003 I think it was) when it didn't snow enough in London for it to settle.  Therefore, when there was a thin white covering of the stuff in 2003 even young teenagers were behaving like kids.

@Minivanman Yes, the Filipinos I worked with some years ago just couldn't resist making a huge snowman, although they waited for their lunch break to do it.
