Sandstorm and good news for Dubai

We’ve been experiencing nasty sandstorms as of this writing today in Dubai. I went out to go to the gym during lunch break and amazed how fine sand found its way through my sunglasses to my eyes!  I felt the slap of sand in my cheeks, ouch not nice.

It’s also suddenly getting hot in here. Last night, we had 26C – what happened to “winter”? Already finished? I took out my winter jacket because I was shivering in 14C on my way home the night before. Tsk, tsk, tsk. This is what desert living does to people – make them shiver at 14C. Ridiculous stuff.

Anyway, sandstorms, gusty winds and sudden heat aside….we had some breaking news today.

Just in time to redeem Dubai of it’s debts and continue to fuel it’s big golden dreams, Sheikh Mohammed tweets, “there is a new oil discovery in Dubai.” It’s good news for the leaders and people of the UAE – nothing can be so timely (if it’s really true).

  1. Does all the city keep going during the sandstorms, or do some things shut down? Here in D.C. we are expecting to get 2 feet of snow – and the city is panicking, closing schools already, and everyone is rushing out to the store to lay in groceries!

    I was thinking the same thing… How can people drive during the sandstorm? I have seen them on television and they look horrible, I am sure they hurt your face something awful, plus getting in your eyes – OH MY!!

    I do hope the new oil field is true… that would be so good for your country.
