Saudi Students' First Snowfall Is A Memorable One

Three 18-year-old Saudi Arabian students, studying English at Boston University, are experiencing their first-ever snowfall — only a week after arriving in the United States.

Producer Karyn Miller-Medzon braved the blizzard to walk from the Here & Now studios to the students’ dorm.

Ziyad Al Qahtani, Abdulrahman Adel Abdu and Abdwziz Aldamashqi describe what the snow looks like to them, and how they’re navigating its pitfalls.
