Steaming HOT and Freezing COLD

Saudi Arabia has been known for its location on world geography as one of the countries “near the sun.” Basically it only means the temperature here reaches up to 50 degrees up and its freaking hot out here. presently it is summer here and the temperature reading has reached its maximum up to 52 degrees outside. this is why a lot of people doesnt like to go outside during noontime.

the temperature here is extreme. during summer you can almost feel like the sun is near you and during cold season, reaches up to 0 degrees. riyadh which is the capital of the country reported to have snow last year but didnt last long. unfortunately i wasnt able to experience it here in al ahsa, eastern part of the kingdom. though there was no snow falling still you can feel the chill around 9-5 degrees temperature. 

summer in saudi arabia usually comes from april till august while cold or i may say winter on september till march. the main problem people here usually encounter during the change of season, sandstorm. at first i thought it was kinda cool seeing sandstorm probably because its my first time that time. honestly speaking, not cool at all. its like your in the middle of a tornado only this time its sand. no raindrops, just wind and the sand. this are the times people are prone to car accidents while driving. so better stay at home if there is nothing important to attend to.

fog cause this on the road to abqaiq

right now september is coming, i must prepare enough blankets to keep the chill out of me and some thick garments to support my daily travel from house to work. i hope it snows in here as well. havent experience this one before. hehe.
