Watch the snow-hit desert

Desert are usually very hot, dusty and dry.

But now this desert in Saudi Arabia has turned white.

Snow storms have left a layer of white snow on top of the sand.

The bulk of the snow hit a town near the northern city of Tabuk.

It forced the Bedouin shepherds and their camels to stay in their tents for protection and to keep warm.

But some Bedouins have decided it's now warm enough for his camels to graze again.
