Still no rain

Sunset burj dubai

We’re halfway through November but still no rain here in desert land. Clouds are appearing early in the morning and in the afternoons but during midday, the skies are clear, blue and cloudless. We are still having maximum temperatures of 33C but with low humidity so it’s a great time to be outside, just don’t forget your sun cream.

Regarding the rain poll, if it won’t rain until the 29th, I’ll add December dates for everyone to place their bets again as to when Dubai’s going to have its first rain of the season. Last night, I dreamed that it did rain, so it must be near. πŸ™‚

By the way, that tall spire-like thing piercing through the afternoon clouds is the Burj Dubai, standing at more than 800 meters above the ground.


Thanks for everyone who left a comment regarding my toothache posts on this blog and on Twitter. I figured I’ll stop writing about dentists trips, root canals and crappy toothaches before I turn this into a toothache blog. To cut the story short, I went to a new dentist yesterday who diagnosed my problem differently. I still went through the dreaded root canal and though I was in terrible pain while on the dentist’s chair yesterday, this morning, I woke up pain free and feeling alive again. The days of being zoombie-like has ended.


  1. So happy you’re feeling better! A toothache blog is something I’ve not run across yet though. Maybe you could corner the market.

    The skies in Dubai look lovely, we’re at 50’s daytime and waiting for snow. Since I’m on east coast, we get more than enough rain here. I love it!



  2. Glad to hear your tooth is better. I LOVE that picture. Did you take it while driving? or were you the passenger πŸ˜‰

    We finally got some sprinkles here in the Sonoran Desert…. I don’t remember the last time it rained!

    Passenger! Hubby drove. Our car is not that of Knight Rider’s…it’s can’t be set to “auto drive”. πŸ™‚

  3. Still no rain? This year I bought rain barrels for my house, two huge ones. Of course since I bought them it has rained all summer and I’ve hardly used them! Glad your tooth is better, that is miserable.



  4. Howdy! This is my first comment here i really merely wanted to provide a simple shout out and show you I really take pleasure in looking through your blog posts. Are you able to suggest some other blogs
