Would you believe that since Friday, we had been experiencing overcast skies and rain! My prayers were answered. The news says that probably, we will not see the sun until Wednesday. Not seeing the sun in Dubai is a very rare event, it felt like I had been transported to another place when I woke up this morning.
Reports said that temperatures plunged to near freezing point in some parts of the country last Thursday. Jebel Jais, in the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah was the coldest area in the UAE with temperatures dipping to as low as 1.4 degree Celsius! At this rate, it would not be surprising if one of these days, we’ll have something like the snow delight in Baghdad a few days ago.
One can dream of snow in the middle of the desert, right?
Today marks our first year here in Dubai. So much has happened and changed, mostly positive ones. We are ready to embark in another year of adventure.
