Snow in Kenya

There was “snow” in Kenya yesterday – 2 Sept. 2008. Technically it’s being called “hail”, but it’s good enough for a snowball fight. For more pictures go to the The Daily Nation or read the BBC report

For a U-Tube video of snow ball fights go to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Ra8zQnBBMg

Other videos – including TV news reports. The most popular seems to be the Citizen TV report.

    I think this is hai rather than snow… where was the photo taken and when? Good indication of changes in weather. I remember as a child there used to be a lot more hail and frost in various parts of Kenya, such as Kericho and Tigoni.

    Elizabeth. This is from this week. You can click on Daily Nation article to see more pictures and decide for yourself. Some of the pictures look like hail, some of them look more like snow. As you know, hail/snow-like preciptation can come down in different consistencies.
