And I suppose they will blame any accidents on not having snow tyres, they should have been better prepared.

Sand tyres are equally as good in snow:)

Iv'e heard camel racing has been abandoned - because of the snow!

What do they fit the camels with in those conditions? Do they add anti-freeze to their water so their humps don't freeze?

....desert camels get the hump...when it snows....

As a matter of interest, how long would it be expected to lie on the ground for? I assume that the overhead sun near the equator still warms the place up considerably from the overnight low temperatures when it does get very cold in the desert.

Quickbeam, it could be longer than you might think:-

I see that Casablanca will escape it, so Sam's piano should keep it's tune OK.

What is it about Youtube that the comments always seem to be full of strong language? Isn't there a moderator?
