Rain In Muscat

Sometime back in either November or December we had some rain.  Not like, 'drip, drip' rain but pouring for hours rain!  I took some pics on the way to a 'certain place'.  Enjoy....

Oh, first of all, heehee, this is just a pic outside my studio window one fine day.  You can see in the distance that they are building a palace, yep, a PALACE very close to me!  Uber cool.

Traffic jammed up due to rain.  The orange and white car on the left is a local taxi cab.  There is no place for the water to go and we have 'wadi's' here or to my best understanding 'valley's' and they get flooded easily.

In the distance here you can see our new Royal Opera House.  I took the kids to see Swan Lake and it was amazing!

Not sure what I was shooting here.  I think Ali took this.

Yes, we have stop signs just like home in America!  See the water how muddy it is?

Uh oh, an accident,...ALREADY!!

Yep, the dudes are assessing the damage and seeing if they need to call the PoPo.

Water gushing down this hill...

Water escaping the grounds of a property through these holes in the walls.  Some houses are surrounded by tall walls to differentiate property lines?  Privacy?  All my neighbors know exactly what's going on in my home because the maids all gossip, yeah!!

Can you see the flow of the water?

Later that night my friend Karen and I went to see a movie.  Can't remember what we saw.  Bummer!

I asked some dude to take a pictures and the dipwad made it blurry.

Then I took this one myself.  I really like Karen's umbrella!

Thanks for stopping by.
