Here There and Everywhere

Stormy Weather

I heard a strange sound last night, and couldn’t figure out what it was. When I did – I laughed. How could a girl from the Pacific Northwest not know the sound of rain on the windows?

Here is what the “sunrise” looks like this morning:


It’s 61°F/16C early this Sunday morning, and the forecast is for light rain. We really need a good, soaking, heavy rain. Insh’allah.

  4. Jewaira – More! More!

    We did get quite a bit today . . . and in the Kuwait Times, a meteorologist says there are southeasterly winds and it could rain most of the entire month of February, hhhooooorrraaayyyyyy!

    1001 Nights . . yeh. It’s not like people are going to slow down any just because of a little rain, aarrgh.

    Onlooker – I love the smell! But it might pour in your neighborhood, and be dry as a bone in mine! I would love to see one of those mighty storms over the whole of Kuwait!
