EDIT - not you Imre - the post above yours.

Hi all.

Fantastic stuff OTR.

Adaei. Nice. Please post all you can from up there.

Imre - great updates the last 2 days - 270 odd pics - woohoo.

They will have to get after attaching the bottom half of tier 23's small wings in the next 2 days if they are going to jack to top out on Saturday. Like Dennis I'm thinking it may be a few days after that.

I don't know how much rain was fall (probably not much because it's in the desert), but some heavy rain would maybe clean that sand and dust off...

Just got back from a trip to the Mall.

The glass is filthy. Never seen it so dirty!

I didn't take my camera though - sorry.

For reference, here's a pic taken on December 16th. If anyone takes a photo today, do post it up for comparison!

The rain was torrential last night. I was in a cab going down the SZR as the Burj was getting hit by lightning.

I've never seen rain like it in Dubai before. I've never even seen rain like it in the UK before, and that's saying something!
