what does the desert look like when it rains? do things start getting very green over there after a rain? do your "regular trees" (rather than palm trees) get a little greener?

Rain causes 427 road accidents
Staff Report
Published: 02/23/2006 12:00 AM (UAE)


Abu Dhabi: Rain in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain led to 427 minor car accidents, according to an Abu Dhabi police report on Wednesday.

It noted 300 accidents in Abu Dhabi and 127 in Al Ain.

There were some injuries in Al Ain, said Major Mohammad Ebrahim Al Ameri, head of the Rescue and Ambulance section in Al Ain police.

He said the accidents happened due to speeding "despite poor visibility and failure to leave adequate space between cars".

true, but i guess my question can be complimented with some pictures to explain what i mean by "green" and "greener":

a picture of mine from las vegas, a desert climate with little rainfall


a picture of mine from a somewhat-rural area of delaware, a temperate climate with plenty of rain


notice how delaware seems greener than las vegas? do your trees have a lighter tone when it doesn't rain?

You're lucky. The Springs and Jumeirah Islands residents were woken by the water entering their houses/villas from all directions.

Water seeped into our house as well in well in the Lakes The problem seems to be with villas, a friend has theirs flooded in Jumeirah, and apparently some Jumeirah Islands residents called Radio 2 this morning to say part of the villa structure had collapsed?

Like Firsttimers! This kind of reminds me of a video of americans driving on the highway, and it had some ice on the surface, and like 10 cars crashed (at the speed of 20kmh), they even crashed into the ambulance car afterwards.
