It snowed in the last couple of days but not enough for the slopes to open again (At least not in Mzaar) and the sunny weather is already back. I remember hearing predictions about this winter being the toughest in years but it doesn’t feel like winter at all.

Here are pictures from the past couple of years taken by SkiLeb webcams:

Let’s wait and see if the decree will get implemented or “Bi2aksso” 3le. What I found weird is that traders were given a limit of 4 months to sell their existing stocks before the ban takes place which doesn’t make any sense.

Widespread and much-consumed energy drinks containing alcohol are no more allowed to be made or marketed in Lebanon, or even imported into the country, as ordered by the Ministries of Public Health and Economy on Monday. Both Ministers Ali Hassan Khalil and Nicolas Nahhas explained, in their joint decision, that all alcoholic beverages containing additives like caffeine would be banned in Lebanon as of next June.
