November Rain in Dubai

A lot of us here in Dubai have been praying for rain to come, even briefly. And our prayers are answered last night and today.

DXB Rain Nov 30 2012 A


It doesn't rain here often but when it does, it signifies the change of season. We're ushering to the winter season now so we expect a drop in temperature in the coming days. That can only mean one thing, hello winter clothing!

As of this writing, it's still raining like cats and dogs. I had to put the air condition unit off because it's a bit cold and bearable. The road's wet and the drainage is not that good here. So, it's a bit flooded in some roads. Thank goodness it's weekend so there's not much traffic around except for some cars and trucks doing their usual business on a Friday morning.

I miss the rain, not the hurricane or typhoon kind but this light steady downpour as it washes the sand away. It's not every year that we get rain here and when it does, it's a welcome respite to the hot, summer days of the previous months.

It's nice to just sit near the balcony, watch the rain fall and drink a very hot chocolate in this rainy Friday morning.

  5. That what Christians call 'Prayer Power". Seldom lang pala umulan dyan ng tubig. yung sandstorms madalas ba?

  15. Good thing the rain has come! I think that Dubai has not really invested much on their drainage system because of the scarcity of rain but with all the developments in there, they must act about it.

  16. God is always good, He knew what we need. Must be really nice to experienced rain in Dubai, my friend who's working there always wish for rain...so I bet every Filipino (assuming) is happy there now. Enjoy the rain and watching it, hubby and I loves listening to the sounds of the rain from our balcony. :)

  19. Ay! That's really good to know! :) No wonder my cousin-in-law is so happy when she messaged me in WhatsApp when it rained in Dubai. I was like, "hindi ka pa ba nakaka-experience ng rain, ate?"

    Lol. Little did I know, madalang lang pala ang ulan dyan! :)

    Ay. One question po ate. Will it snow there in Dubai ba during winter season?
