Some local friends of mine were insisting that it would snow today (19.02.08). I on the other hand kept on insisting that it will not snow; ‘it says so on my Firefox status bar’. I had recently added the recommended Add-on by Firefox called ‘Forecastfox’.
I don’t know how the news spreads in Amman but it spreads like ‘wild fire’. Almost all of my local Jordanian friends (or is it Jordanian Palestinian? I am not even sure which is the politically correct terminology to use, as I get corrected so many times as to who is original Jordanian and who is Jordanian Palestinian) were convinced that it would snow.
What happened the next day??? I wake up Tuesday morning and it was snowing and extremely foggy. Below are some of the pictures I took from my car after I had dropped my wife of to the university, where she is studying Arabic.
Next time I am going to phone my Jordanian friends for an update on local weather 🙂
BTW can anyone explain what is the story behind people getting worked up about being called ‘Jordanian’ and ‘Jordanian Palestinian’?
