This is snow joke! Sahara desert sees huge snowfall

Slide 1 of 10

The world's hottest desert, the Sahara in the African continent, experienced heavy snowfall for the first time in 37 years on Jan. 20, 2017. The snow was almost waist deep in certain parts, including Ain Sefra in Algeria. The snow has covered the red sand dunes, giving locals the opportunity to sled down and enjoy the sudden weather change. Here's a look at some stunning images of the rare phenomenon.
