If you’ve looked out the window today, you might have noticed Dubai has been struck by a spot of rain.
But even if you’ve had the curtains firmly drawn, it’s highly likely you have got wind (sorry) of the rain by now, simply by the sheer volume of social media posts about it – Twitter, Instagram and Facebook have all been flooded (again, sorry) with Dubaians sharing their rainy snaps.
We asked our readers to tweet their rain-stained pics to @TimeOutDubai – and these are some of the best.
