"Colder than you would Imagine" Iraq Warnings Or Dangers Tip by AnthonyMaze

Iraq Warnings and Dangers: 13 reviews and 11 photos

While deployed to Al Asad Air Base in Iraq, I found out the hard way that it was ALOT colder than you would expect. They have winter months of November through March just like the midwest in the United States. I WAS NOT expecting it to be as cold as it was though. For the majority of time it was exactly how it would be if you were in lower Ohio or Kentucky. If anyone is going to be there on deployment or if your a contractor going over there for the first time. Expect to be purchasing more warming layers that what you would expect. It actually DOES snow sometimes in Iraq. Stay Warm.
