Climate changes or just bad luck

Last week I spend three days in Dubai (UAE). It was raining all three days. And not just raining - the sky opened up and water close to biblical proportions came down. Dubai's sewer system isn't build to accommodate so much water as one of the photos clearly shows.
I think 1/3 of all cranes are located in Dubai. Where ever you look a building of gigantic proportions are shooting up from the desert sand. The tallest building - Burj Dubai Skyscraper - in the world is currently being build (see photo).
As my company has supplied external light to light up the world’s largest mosque - The Grand Mosque Dubai - I also got a chance to visit this fantastic building.
