25 April 2018

It rained today.  Hard.  In the late morning.  And it's 16 degrees right now, in late April, in Riyadh.  That is pretty much unheard of.  It would be more normal for it to be 35.

Even better, I happened to have a grocery store trip planned while it was raining.  I almost never get to drive in the rain here.  The driver was as happy as I was, and we took the long way home because the main road was flooded under an overpass and causing a major slowdown.  One time he even has to turn the window wipers on fast as they would go and we drove through some puddles of water on purpose. 

I don't think I've ever gone to the grocery store at midday, and the one day I do, it's the day it's raining.  Some days you do get lucky here.
