residents of the north increased their preparations for the cold, especially during its peak, as gas stations saw masses lining up to fill kerosene, the most common heating technique in northern Saudi Arabia, due to the strong demand for it.
Meanwhile, inhabitants in the northern region’s Al-Qurayyat Governorate lit the fuses on their heating units in order to combat the cold wave that had descended on their city.
To avoid the chilly wave, a number of locals resorted to wearing heavy winter clothing (fur) (Al-Jumaydah).
While others recreated winter traditions such as curling themselves around a semi-fire and eating the Mansaf feast to keep warm.
