I stand corrected.

Rain is real and it can come out of the sky in buckets at a time... Seriously it was amazing how much water could fall out of the sky. and to think it happened without the help of the government seeding the clouds.

It's hard to tell but there are a bunch of cars pulled over on the side of the road waiting out the down pour! But not me! Nope! I'm an Oregonian. If we pulled over every time it rained, well, we'd never get anywhere. I laugh in the face of rain! Of course I also know to drive at a reasonable speed and get away from the fast lane so all the crazies* can go by.

This is the scene as I left my office today. Beautiful, clear sky... like the whole thing never happened. All that's left are a few puddles here and there as proof that we don't have a proper drainage system is this ever growing country known as the UAE

*by "crazies" i mean those guys in the fancy cars and feel that even though it hasn't rained properly in 10 months that they can handle the roads and speeds averaging 100 mph (160 kph) because they have "traction control" :::eye roll:::

I STILL have yet to see this rain you speak of. Stu called me from work yesterday to tell me it was "pouring"... I rush to the window and am met with blue skies. No rain on THIS island! Sighhhh.
