We’re having the best weather imaginable.  Earlier today, I was doing some gardening and changed some of the burnt bulbs outside.  I couldn’t believe how much sand dust came out of the lights! 

I took the above photograph, of the Al Kout Mall,  around this time last year.  It was just after a major sand storm and the fountain was being cleaned.  They started off brushing the sand under water.  Have a look at the larger version. It takes a lot of work to keep Kuwait looking good!

I hope this beautiful weather lasts a while.

Two days ago I decided to catch up on some of the gardening.  The grass is overgrown, there are weeds everywhere and the trees need trimming.  At 1430, my car thermometer read 56.5°C !!  I decided to wait for it to “cool” down.  At midnight, it was still 40.5°C.  These were not official temperatures (car is in the sun and all that) but it put me off even attempting.

Yesterday’s excuse was a different one.  This huge cloud of fog/haze/dust landed on the city and suburbs.  Last night, on my drive back from Kuwait City, this was the scene at Fahaheel (an area 40km south of Kuwait).  The whole journey was the same and I saw at least three accidents.

I hope I don’t find another excuse tomorrow…
