The band of clouds last week finally gave in and the skies opened up, leaving UAE residents scrambling for shelter yesterday. After almost eight months of dryness, the grounds have finally tasted rain!
cloudy sky in Dubai – - very unusual!
The last rain, as far as I remember, was the time we transfered to our apartment after temporary residing in the company guesthouse like nomads. The date was March 24, 2007.
fluffy cirrus clouds like sheep
But of course, it is not rain like what rain would be in Japan or in the Philippines but it was enough to tell my daughter that this is still earth – - that the clouds mean that it does rain here too.
