About the UAE's Independence Day & unexpected downpour
Imagine this: 3 days stretch of weekend due to Independence Day of UAE, a sudden day-long downpour which lasted the whole day in the country that only rains twice/thrice a year. The result? Indescribable traffic jams, series of endless accidents and angry-looking drivers everywhere. In Sharjah, certain parts of Dubai and several other emirates, roads turned into instant ‘wadi’, thanks to sewerage system here (do they really need a proper one here?).
Nonetheless, it’s was a colorful scene in capital with light & laser shows, traditional concerts, fireworks and the never-ending honking on the road.
