So rare was the snowfall that a lifelong resident of the area said the local dialect does not even have a word for 'snow,' the UAE daily The National reported.
" The sight up there this morning was totally unbelievable, with the snow-capped mountain and the entire area covered with fresh, dazzling white snow "
“Twenty years ago we had lots of hail [but] last night was like this. At four in the morning we came out and the ground was white,” the paper quoted lifelong resident of the area Aisha al Hebsy, 50, as saying.
Sunday's snowfall was only the second time in recorded history that it has snowed in the emirate, with temperatures dropping two degrees below zero as 20 cm (eight inches) of snow accumulated in some places.
