  • Description

    Visnews Feb 26 filmed snow-white Amman after an unexpected 36-hour snow tumble from the Mid-East skies.

    Bulldozers were out instead of sunshades. Nobody sat sipping Turkish coffee or talked politics - they chuckled at their footprints in the snow and shied snowballs.

    The snow fell heavily, cut telephone lines that usually hum merrily in fierce sunshine. Snow roads to Lebanon, clogged the run to the nation's one sea-port in the South at Akaba.

    In Amman, workers from the Ministry of Welfare and police supplied food, clothing to the needy. There was rush buying at fuel stations for heating stoves and lamps.
