SOUTHEASTERN, Algeria - Algeria's national weather agency has commented that as astounding as it seems, a full-blown blizzard has hit the Sahara Desert dumping 13 inches of snow on the sand.
Reports are that it is the very first time that snow has fallen on the sands of the mighty Sahara in 17,302 years.
Algerian old timers shook their heads and said that it was a sign from the great Sandman in the Sky that Algeria is headed for war.
Reporters have commented that there has been some trouble brewing between Algeria and Mauritania due to a dispute involving some stray camels that stampeded from Mauritania into Algeria causing close to $7,000 in damages.
The matter had apparently been resolved after Mauritania paid for the damages, but now it seems that they have received a clean up bill for all of the camel poop.
Mauritania has informed Algeria that it will not be paying the bill which is for $271.98.
