Coming Straight Down

While you are still snuggled safe in your beds, we are having a steady downpour in Kuwait. I didn’t get up until almost 0630 this morning, it was coming down then. It is still coming down steadily more than an hour later. It is not sheets of rain, there is none of the drama we had earlier in the week, but it is steady, and it is exactly what Kuwait needs, a good, soaking rain.

Wooo HOOOOO, Kuwait!

Honestly, there is nothing to photograph. It is just varying shades of grey, melting into one another. Nothing even for the camera to focus on.


The roads are slick with accumulated grease. If you don’t have to drive, just cuddle up, stay home, stay safe.

  5. glad for you Kuwaitis…wish the same would happen in Doha as the rain is much needed. There WAS a thunderstorm the other night, I’m told, but a steady rain would be Heaven. Back that way soon.

  6. I agree, Amu!

    Music to my ears, Amer!

    It really does clear the air, doesn’t it Mathai?

    Oh Bu Yousef, I can imagine your garden is very happy!

    AdventureMan told me it was coming down steady, and heavy, in Qater today, too!

  7. What a downpour it has turned out to be! But it looks lovely everywhere. Actually i was thinking too, of the so many gardens and plants and the gardeners being thrilled with this weather. Its like the typical monsson in India. Hope we have a brief monsson here too, every year!! πŸ™‚
    In the process of posting few snaps, hope i get to get it done soon.

  8. It rained ALL day! It was a totally dreary day! Wooo HOOOO! I hope it was enough to damp down some of that dust, don’t you, Onlooker? Looking forward to the snaps.
