Fog glorious fog

So did anyone else enjoy navigating through the fog today at 5:30am? Honestly it was like driving through a cloud on most of SZR.

What I love the most about Dubai is the truly fascinating weather we have here. A year in Dubai is basically broken down into 338 days of sunshine, 10 days of cloudy/overcast skies, 5 days of rain, and 12 days of fog. So naturally today had to be a fog day...

the weather was gorgeous, and the fog was as dense at 8... all the way to bur dubai.

i wish people wouldnt drive in the fog with their hazards on. hazards are NOT fog lights.

Trust the English to talk of the weather huh Nick! :) ;)

I caught the fog during the week-end, very early morning Saturday. One word: awesome!

Bridget Jones said...

Ah.. two Nicks now.. I knew some day it would come to this ha! ;)

I am the old pro-western democracy islamophobe bastard nick.
public announcement: I changed my nickname

btw., lovely fog, although the moisture caused an earth leakage in the house and almost electrocuted me in the shower.

Bridget Jones said...

Ouch, sorry to hear real-Nick!

Hum, imagine what loss that would have been for the blog here if you had got electrocuted.. aaarrrgh!! ;)

nick said...

rosh said...

There's two of 'em! heaven help us all :)

Nick, the "real" (?) - bro, I think it's just inherent with for uaeians to hit the distress lights, when faced with unexpected potential danger/safety issues/or plain distress of any sort - as a courtesy warning to fellow drivers & tailgaters.

I do it, every so often here in the city, most of my friends, didn't understand at it first.

nick said...

The only time I snap on the hazards is when I'm about 2 inches away from ramming the car in front because the idiot decided to swerve into my lane.

But it's okay - his hazard lights were on.

The real Nick wouldn't post about fog, in fact, he wouldn't post about anything at all.

why don't you start up your own blog Real Nick? or do like living like a parasite, only commenting on others' blogs?

;)

Keefieboy said...

@Rosh: it's just plain wrong. That's why people don't understand it. Don't you understand the real purpose of hazard lights? (Obviously not).

rosh said...

Kipasa Keefie, howz Madrid? Yup, I understand it's incorrect. I know shouldn't....old habits die hard....I guess?

the real nick said...

dubaijazz,

I'm not a parasite; I give free advice to those who need it.
