We’re having continuous bad weather for three consecutive days now. Dubai bad weather means gray skies and dropletsof rain but this morning, we woke up to a real downpour. The forecast says more rain will be expected today. Rain is a rare occurrence here in the UAE (although it has rained a lot in 2007 than in 2006) so I don’t mind a little rain every now and then. If only it doesn’t immediately flood, that is!

Photo taken on my side mirror while driving to work today.
By the time I reached Deira (and got stucked in heavy traffic), the skies have cleared up.
Here’s an interesting photo from Gulf News taken at night in Sheikh Zayed Road, where the tall buildings are. Notice how the Burj Dubai, the world’s tallest building also the world’s most popular lightning conductor (due to its height) – was struck by lightning last night.
So it’s a little bit chilly again today and I like it. I’ll enjoy this weather until the dreaded summer comes.
I didn’t know it rained it Dubai. Hey, I copied your idea of Numbers 1-13 and me. (At least I hope it was your idea.) and I’ve got my 1-13 posted today. Thanks.

He, he, we got still 5 inches of snow left and it’s freezing cold here. So I guess even if it’s raining, you’re still better off in Dubai. 😉

Plenty of rain here – almost always! But that is what makes it so green I suppose.

Beautiful photos of Dubai, Grace. The most amazing for me is the building being struck by lightning…soooo scary. 🙂

As usual awesome photos. The lightening one is fantastic. We woke up to it feeling as though it was -29 degrees.
