Waiting for Snow in Amman–Global Warming in Jordan Too?

Thanks to Firas in Jordan for this photo of a snow-dusted Amman. Firas, who writes a blog at http://iheartamman.blogspot.com/, has been predicting snow for Christmas, but alas! he has had to revise his prediction to rain–only the higher altitudes can expect snow. I suppose that means the ususal snowstorm north of Amman in the hills and forests of Ajloun (for Bible readers, that’s in Gilead) with a few flakes reaching as far northeast as my old hometown of Jerash.

Waiting for rain in December? I thought Jordan’s rainy season started in October.

Firas’ comment? His predictions make Fox News look credible! I guess they know about Fox News out in Jordan too.
