I had no idea how bad the flooding in Dubai was until my friend “Sunshine” told me he’s working from home because he can’t leave the house due to the floods.  On the news, the videos of the chaos in Sharjah is shocking. People are wadding through water to their knees, schools are out, noone can get to work.  You would think that they have some form of drainage system.  But I guess not.  Youtube has plenty of videos of today’s situation such as this one.  Link.  Ok I promise, enough reports of chaos for one week.
