When it Rains Heavy in Qatar

With little or no drainage on the roads, and buildings that are not that weather proof. When it rains in Qatar, the results are quite severe. Gridlocked roads, and heart breaking property damage.

Obviously today’s rainfall would be a light shower in comparison to what other countries get hit by. But Qatar is normally hot and rain free, so when it does rain, it’s a bad day.

I only have a little car, and I nearly drowned the poor thing going to work today. The engine started to struggle and I decided to try and reverse out rather than try and proceed forwards. And I’m glad I did, I have seen too many images today of cars stranded in the middle of road lakes.

At last a swimming pool you can do laps in, instead of lengths.

It was heart breaking to see the awesome Qgym suffering rain damage. I love the place so much, and to see it in such a mess made me so sad.
