It was like a fable from ‘One Thousand and One Nights,’ the famous Arabian folktale: while an unexpectedly harsh winter storm trapped motorists and stranded commuters in the Pennsylvania region, here comes a camel, doing better than most humans and cars in the tough climate.

There was some concern that the camel’s health may have been endangered by the exposure, but relax: he is back in the barn and doing fine.
