Promising?

This time of the year,  the skies are sandy coloured and the weather is incredibly hot and dry. So when I wake to a blue sky with scattered clouds I wonder if this is the promise of rain?

  5. Could be. Looks like Khartoum and Al Ain are sharing same skies.

    Enjoying your arabic word of the day and comparing it to Emarati Arabic.

    Have a great weekend dear.

  7. It's fun to visit skies from all over the world! You're wishing for rain and we're heading into a long dry spell now too. No rain most likely until October or November for us here in NorCal. Enjoy the day...

  11. No promises. But, I think you are about at our latitude and we're dripping in rain. So, maybe.....

  14. Just writing the word "promise of rain" changed the mood in that photo. Instead of feeling gray [as it was], I can sense hope...Have a great weekend and God bless you.
