After the Rain

A gloomy Friday morning ended as an eerie evening. The sound of rippling water is not necessarily relaxing.

I can vividly remember, my first experience with the Saudi rain is on the 9th of December 1999 (I first arrived in Saudi Arabia on June 1999). I can never forget that day for two reasons: one, it was my first experience of the rain in Saudi Arabia; two, it was the first day of Ramadan (1420H).

It was during those years that rain pours only once a year. People prays for rain and people are happy when it rains. It is however different now, beginning the past year, Saudi Arabia experiences rain more often comparable to a tropical country. And when it rains heavy – unfortunately – it brings some casualties.

Below is another video of rain on 30 December 2010, it is a Thursday (a weekend) so I was able to capture the rain from our house too.
