Hail in Abu Dhabi

Recommended Posts

Woke up to a thunder storm today. First proper rain in six months since I have been here. Hubby said the roads were chaos, with trees and signs down and hail in the desert

Second photo is not mine but wow

I'm travelling to Yas Island next month - temps around the mid-high 20s?

 

Also, any hints of places to go/eat etc.? My hotel is charging £27 even for a simple burger and chips, so I don't think I'll be heading there very much!

Well that was exciting. The locals were saying it's the worst they have seen for years. It was a storm but not too bad by UK standards. Problem is they are not set up to deal with rain so the roads are not designed to let the rain drain off.
