Is this unusual weather for your neck of the woods, Gillian? I know you have extremely hot summers, but I'm not familiar with your winters.

Hi Yvonne. This is something that very few people living in the West know about the climate here. Yes we do have VERY HOT Summer. However, this does not mean that it gets "warm" in Winter. It is.....:( DESERT climate, meaning one of two:

a) BOILING HOT :<3: Summer with HEAT WAVES (which are dangerous of course).

b) FREEZING COLD Winter with SNOW! :( Sounds incredible, I do know that.

Furthermore, Spring and Autumn do NOT "exist" so as to say, which is a pity.

It is in the 40's here, which isn't bad. But a few days ago it was going down to 18 F...I like cold weather but 18 it too cold.

Same as here. ;)
I'm glad it's a warmer today, but it won't be for long, according to the weather forecast it's going down to 10F next week. :confused:
I think I'm going to hibernate till March... :p

Woah, but this is not the normal winter weather in Amman, is it? :eek:
The climate graphs that can be found online look quite different.

No it isn't. At the same time, it snows here in Jordan (not only Amman) each and every year. Goodness...the snow storm last year kept us "imprisoned" for about ONE WEEK.:( We are not allowed to move, and in case of emergencies GOD forbid, one is to call JPD (Jordan Police Department). AND if you get caught outside, walking/driving.....you're in for real trouble and a penalty!!:( What do you think of that?

:eek: Difficult to imagine for me... But the Near East is known to have quite strict (and not always comprehensible) laws.
What about homeless people? Of course I hope noone has to be outside without shelter during a snow storm, but where do they imprison them?

I do realize that it's hard to believe, not only to imagine.:rolleyes:

Oh, unfortunately a lot of people are homeless here, and the number is only increasing with the refugees.:mad: Those are the people who cannot be punished/penalized.

I guess it's a two-fold problem for the police - looking out for your safety, and keeping people indoors cuts down on emergency calls when the police are short handed.
