The AP reports:
After weathering nearly five years of war, Baghdad residents thought they’d pretty much seen it all. But as muezzins were calling the faithful to prayer, the people here awoke to something certifiably new.
Snow is common in the mountainous Kurdish areas of northern Iraq, but residents of the capital and surrounding areas could remember just hail. And that, only very occasionally.
Summer temperatures in Baghdad are routinely a sweltering 120 degrees and winters generally mild.
But this week has been unusually cold and blustery, with overnight temperatures more than 10 degrees below normal. On Thursday morning, the thermometer hovered around freezing after a low of 27, and the Baghdad airport closed because of low visibility.
They better hurry up and impose the carbon tax before the public catches wind of this hoax called global warming.
