Snow Falls On Pyramids - First Time In 100 Years!


Cairo has been transformed into a winter wonderland after a "historic" storm in the Middle East brought a rare treat to Egypt's capital on Friday: a blanket of powdery, white snow.
Due to Cairo's low rate of precipitation and typically above-freezing winter temperatures, snow is an exceptionally unusual weather phenomenon for the North African city. So unusual, in fact, that the Los Angeles Times, citing local news reports, writes that the last recorded snowfall in Cairo was more than 100 years ago.
Take a look at the photos below:

    1. the key part of the story you're missing is that its the first time it happened in 100 years.... meaning it happened 100 years ago, was that because of global warming too? or perhaps its just a natural occurance that once in a while (a long while) it happens to snow in Egypt, all it takes it the rare combination of precipitation and below freezing temperatures, both of which they get a few times a year, just not normally both at once, and this year they both happened on the same day.

    2. Stop being such a retard. It's a perfect example of climate changes...it's warmer now in AK than at any other time in 1000 years.

    4. This my friends is a perfect proof of how good a photo shop can be.
      As Hannah mentioned, we live close to the Pyramid, and there was no snow
      One more thing: The light falls on the Pyramids in this angel in the afternoon, and the spinx shot was taken at 6.00 am (Knowing how the light is). Do you want to tell em that under cairo sun, teh snow remained for 8 hours and did not melt?

  4. Guys, I'm right next to the Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx. I have a friend living near the Sakkara step pyramids too. There is no snow on the pyramids or the Sphinx. Cairo is a big place, and snow fell elsewhere but not on the pyramids. Rain, yes. Fog, yes. Snow, no.

  5. If this is true and not a hoax, it is not a sign of global warming. It is a sign of Climate Change which is normal. It is the start of our world shifting and changing again much like when the continents were divided so long ago...

  7. Pyramids and Sphinx did get snowed on... but not the ones in Egypt. These pictures are from Japan. They have models of the pyramids and Sphinx that got the snowy weather.
