WOW! The rain! The Thunder! The lightening! And now the wind! The crazy crazy wind! We can't find a taxi anywhere, planes are being cancelled (38 planes are waiting to leave Dubai Airport) and most delivery companies are closed or working with severe delays. Schools across Abu Dhabi are closed, with one school losing it's roof due to strong winds (there were no injuries).

We feel like we're under attack! And these videos show exactly how bad things are, in particular the ones of Al Reem Island in Abu Dhabi...brace yourselves! 

Stay safe guys!

Al Reem Island...

Back in JLT...
