In Saudi Arabia, the snow comes every year, and every year it's a surprise.
Snow has covered the northern regions of Saudi Arabia, turning the desert into a winter wonderland. Saudis are taking to Twitter to express their thrills and chills, with one resident even rolling snow into a carpet.
Watch:

 
Other videos show people singing, dancing, and throwing snowballs at each other as snow carpets the desert.  

 

 
Camels, who are not very used to seeing snow, are covered in white.
Snowman, skiing and piles of cars -- people in Saudi Arabia have seen it all in this short-lived snow season.
 
 
Forget the artificially-built Snow City, now you can even ski on the icy roads, like this man.
 
Many others got slowed down as a long line of cars were seen stranded in the snow.
