This was the message on our golf cart when we were on the 16th fairway. We were so close to getting done!
So all this happened on a Tuesday. The next day, Graham woke me up and somehow I couldn't see the time on my alarm clock. Gosh, I didn't think I was that blind without my contact lens! Well, the power had actually cut off during the night. As usual, the boys were up early - 6:15am, enough time to get them to school. But later in the morning, a couple of notes had come in about school being canceled. I guess the Education Ministry is expecting some weather again for Abu Dhabi. And they did not disappoint!
And I was suppose to meet up with some friends for lunch in the city at 12pm. I'm so glad we decided to cancel it!
I still can't believe how hard it rained and how strong the wind was. The wind was swirling too. I thought that only happened in Oklahoma!
As for the aftermath, we really should be thankful that none of our glass windows or glass doors blew in (note to self: Don't stand in front of one during the next storm!) or having a roof collapse above us. It was quite something looking at photos and videos of damages from the storm in the city and the other Emirates/States.
As for us, there were a couple of really strange things actually. First... this little fishy. I found it on our balcony on the 6th floor!
I suppose eventually we'll get that bucket down from the pergola! Well, definitely a day to remember. And oh, where was Bobby during the 2-days worth of rain? In Rome on a business trip! Somehow, he keeps missing out on these eventful days. Nonetheless, another one to put in our adventure/memory book!
