COVID-19 has clogged up news feeds all weekend, and it seems like there was only one thing capable of drawing attention in another direction.
A storm unlike we’ve seen in some time.
And last night was just that. A lightning shower that wouldn’t quit, ‘golfball size hailstones’ and to add to the magic, Dubai residents congregated on balconies across the city in a syndicated effort to thank all the healthcare heroes working during this time.
A Dubai resident sent the call out, not knowing the electric storm was coming

And just after 8pm, the showers came with ‘golf ball hailstones’ – this was not the average storm

The thunderous showers stopped visibility, but amongst the showers, something awesome happened
A chorus of cheers and whoops took over
‘We welcomed a storm and celebrated the healthcare workers at the same time’
And the city came together – truly amazing!
