This is the view from my office window. Can’t wait for this unstable weather to pass!

When did this happen? Abu Dhabi hired a team of scientists who successfully created 52 rainstorms from clear skies along with hail, lightning and wind gales during the peak summer months of 2010! The residents were totally confused since their weather service predicted no clouds or rain for each time a storm kicked up.
The scientists from Metro Systems International have been working secretly for the Abu Dhabi leader Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan on a $11 million project (wasn’t their Christmas tree $11 Million too?) using giant ionisers shaped like stripped down lampshades to generate fields of charged particles which creates cloud formation. Read the full story [here].
I came across an article in the Khaleej Times from May 2005 which mentions that experts in Abu Dhabi used an “eco-friendly” hydrogen bomb for four days as one of their first experiments to make artificial rain. Since when did bombs and explosives get eco-friendly?
All these artificial creations will definitely bring on some serious consequences. They’ve already messed up their coastline with the artificial islands and now it’s the rainstorms? All this money and science won’t help when nature strikes back.

The cold weather just sneaked up without warning. It was pleasant throughout December but it’s pretty cold now. And with hardly any rain it’s been a dry chilly winter so far.
It was in the news today that the temperature might drop down to zero degrees on Saturday and there will be continuous rain from Jan 23rd. I don’t know far that is accurate but Kuwaiti astrologists Adel Al-Marzouq and Saleh Al-Oajiri both agreed that there will be a a cold wave on Saturday and the temperature will be 3 C at night and 15 C during the the day. I checked The Weather Channel and BBC Weather and both have different forecasts and no updates at Q8weather.com.
So it’s finally going to rain this weekend, I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
