Rainbow over Muscat

as the day has our heaviest downpour yet

Its been a very unusual 10 days.

What is normal in other countries is exceptional in Oman – Rain ; and 10 days of it – extraordinary!

Overcast skies , heavy downpours over much of northern Oman and still probably a few more days of rain to come.

With so much rain it was only a matter of time until a Rainbow appeared – and this one was a full arc (though not possible to get in this picture).

So as we marvel at the rain – and the mountain tops get dusted with snow – it could be a white Christmas in Oman.
