Qatar Snow City

Weird - I ran across this this morning - a 'snow city' for Qatar.

For those of you with text browsers here is what it says...

The Qatar Supreme Desert Development Council (QSDDC) is planning its most ambitious project yet - a snow city to be located in the heart of the Qatar Desert.

Incredibly, the city, which is the brain child of Sudanese Champion Skier Dr. A. F. Ool, will be located outside.

According to Dr Ool, as the snow will be generated via solar-nuclear energy the project will actually run best the in searing heat of the summer.
