Cold Wave for the First Time in 20 Years

Many think of the Middle East as a land of scorching sun, where summer is the only season in ayear. In fact, winter comes to the Middle East too. This winter was particularly cold.  In earlier this month, the cold wave hit the Middle East and snow covered all the region including Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon.

There was also more than 10cm of snow in here Amman, where JEN office is situated. Because it is very rare here to have so much snow, we saw  many children, and even adults, excited  to play snow fight or to make a snowman.

They say spring is short, but summer will come very  soon.
